Ten minutes from mid station, 4 euros, smallish gardens. In April not bursting with life and colour. Probablynotworthentrancefeeforlargefamily.

Incredibly beautiful rock garden perched on the mountainside looking at the sweep of the western shore of the lake. We came up the cable car which runs up from Carciano, climbing 800 metres encountering some eye-popping perspectives of villages, crowns of trees and woodlands all...More

A lovely garden with superb views of the lake and mountains. Not great value for money - but worthwhile supporting this venture.

Visited this garden via the cable car stop which is some 15 minutes walk away. Layout is good and the many lovely plants well labelled. View over the Lake is wonderful and ideal for camera shots. A nice experience and not expensive.

Stopped to visit the gardens on our way down from the top of Mottarone. They are about a 15 minute walk from the cable car. The gardens are very interesting and are wheelchair friendly as there is a made up path. There are again great...More

Having visited this garden along with 4 others on this trip in September, this one came a distant 5th for colour and impact. Of course, alpine plants bloom in April/May/June, and when we got there, only two specimens were in flower. There are nice walks...More

Having read previous reviews I was not surprised at the lack of colour and certainly September is not the time to go if that's what you want. However there are clearly lots of plants in the garden which at the right time of year would...More

This is about 500m from the cable car and isn't worth the minor effort. It is a just a few hundred meters round a pathway and there are a few flowers, the owner doesn't really care if you are there or not. He is just...More

Ma che vi aspettavate di vedere in gennaio? Non siamo nel' emisfero australe! In questo periodo le pianticelle alpine hanno il loro periodo di riposo invernale. Non lo sapevate? Tornate fine maggio / inizio giugno ( non tutte le annate sono uguali) e non sarete delusi. Con simpatia, Silvio.
