Wonderful gardens across many levels but beware as you need a reasonable fitness level to make your visit worthwhile. Amazing specimen trees and shrubs, great collection of brugdansia(angel trumpets), fabulous views across the bay to Forio, plenty of WC facilities with a pleasant cafe.

How long does it take to walk through the entire place? We are trying to decide if this is a half day or full day trip. Thanks!

Yes, I agree with all the people above: we recommend to visitors to allow half a day. It is enough to visit the garden, stroll at leisure, enjoy the view, watch the video in the museum and even stop for a coffee. Unless of... More

How far is la Mortella from porto dischia?
29 May 2015|
Response from Alessandra V | Property representative |
It is about 11 km; it takes 20 mins by car or taxi, or you can take a bus heading to Forio (40 mins) and ask the bus driver to stop at Cavallaro/La Mortella. From the bus stop it is 5 mins walk.
