This magnificent Italian garden belonging to the Giusti family and designed in the 16th century contains age-old trees, gargoyles, fountains, grottoes (which echo strangely) and ancient inscriptions all immersed in a carefully landscaped setting which take advantage of the various levels of the terrain.From the belvedere one can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Verona. Besides the collections of flowers, important Roman ruins and Goethe's huge cypress,the garden preserves all the original sixteenth-century features: fountains, acoustic caves, pergolas, Italian-style boxwood, mythological statues and a small yet complex maze, known as one of the oldest in Visited and celebrated throughout the centuries by famous people from history and culture (among whom Cosimo De' Medici, De Brosses, Addison, Emperor Joseph II, Goethe, Mozart, Carlo Felice of Savoy, Suares and Gabriel Faure).....
