BaitoneAlpino Empfehlt: Parco Giardino Sigurtà

Parco Giardino Sigurtà is one of the most visited naturalistic gardens in Italy and among the most beautiful. It is located in the province of Verona, in the municipality of Valeggio sul Mincio and extends over 60 hectares. Its history begins as early as 14 May 1407, when, during the Venetian domination of Valeggio sul Mincio, the patrician Gerolamo Nicolò Contarini purchased the entire property which at the time had a purely agricultural function. This was the case until 1792, the year in which Marquis Antonio Maffei decided to transform the 22 hectares of the property into a romantic English garden. The spring of 1941 marked the beginning of ownership by the Sigurtà family who purchased the land, starting the grandiose work of redevelopment of the park which led to it being extended to 60 hectares. The opening to visitors took place on 19 March 1978, on a sunny day Carlo Sigurtà opened the Garden to the public. The first visitors could only enter in a car. Today the garden has a surface area of 600,000 square meters and can be visited on foot, with rental bikes and golf carts, or on board the electric shuttle or the panoramic train. It is open from March to November and we advise you to keep an eye on the official website: throughout the opening period, the numerous blooms of the floral species it hosts alternate and all are wonderful. The most important is Tulipanomania which, with its million bulbs, is the largest tulip bloom in Southern Europe. In short, in every period, the Sigurtà Garden Park will amaze you and delight your eyes with wonderful flowers!
