Overview

This year, among the highlights of new openings in Ischia, we recommend an original garden worth visiting. Open only a few days a week, the garden offers a fascinating walk through a variety of exotic and local vegetation. On display, among water streams, is an impressive collection of cacti and other plants that look like natural sculptures - a collection gathered over 30 years which is a must see for any any garden fan.

These gardens are modest in comparison to La Mortella but still worth a visit especially if you enjoy cacti! A casual stroll around takes about 1 - 2 hours and it's worth keeping your eyes open for some of the more unusual sights - including...More

This venue is a must visit for anyone, not just garden enthusiasts. I have to agree with their marketing - it is one of the largest collections in Europe (perhaps the world) of succulents and cacti of rare and precious botanical specimens. The whole layout...More
