Botanical gardens on Lake Como

Botanical gardens all over the world offer visitors a deep insight into the extensive plant world of our earth. At any time of year, visitors can admire beautiful and unique flowers, green plants and woody plants from all parts of the world, including the Asian and American continents.

Not only in spring, when nature awakens to new life, but also in summer, when many plants are in full bloom and develop a splendour of colour that is overwhelming, a visit to a botanical garden becomes an experience of a very special kind.

A visit to the villas and botanical gardens around Lake Como is always worthwhile. Let yourself be enchanted by the splendour and wonderfully sweet scents of this world.

Perhaps the amateur gardeners among you will also find inspiration to turn their own garden into a little paradise or to embellish it a bit more, because some of the plants cultivated in the botanical gardens also feel at home in our latitudes. Just take a look.
