Villa Taranto, Paradise of flowers!

Villa Taranto, Paradise of flowers! The tourist season at the Botanical Gardens of Villa Taranto began on March 19 and will end after 229 days of uninterrupted opening on Sunday, November 2.
The more than 16 acres include about 20,000 species of particular botanical importance that come from every corner of the world. The arrangement of the species allows the park to recreate a set of “gardens”, some of which are characterized by geometric designs and other more spontaneous, seemingly unusual, very beautiful but each with its own peculiarities.
Among them, we can not forget the famous terraced gardens, one of the scenarios that characterizes the park (in this regard we have a property with a beautiful garden terrace in Laveno and one in Luino). Other properties of Engel & Völkers Lago Maggiore.
The Botanical Gardens of Villa Taranto is a treasure trove of rare species, a composition in which the “botanical curiosity” is integrated with the aesthetic taste of an academic Linnaean, which was the Scottish Captain Neil Mc. Eacharn, creator of the park, forming a spectacular play of light, shadows and colors unmatched.
During the period of closure, the park has been enriched with new collections of essences for a total of about 600 plants. This opportunity is due to the previous tornado had uprooted coniferous and deciduous trees around the entire perimeter of the Compendium.
In addition, a new and innovative project to disseminate sound of music will cheer the visiting tourists during a few days of opening.
You can watch dozens of flower beds with their unique blooms. Hellebori, violets, anemones, daffodils, will be the pillow to all other blooms that will meet during the walk.
As every year, the events on Lake Maggiore will attract thousands of visitors.
