The botanical gardens at Giardini Botanici di Villa Taranto are open every day, including holidays!

The Villa Taranto Botanical Gardens will be open daily, including holidays, from 12 March to 5 November.
March will kick off the first spring blooms: edgeworthias, prunus, magnolias, forsythias, narcissus and tulips. Later in the season, one can admire large patches of hundreds of rhododendrons and azaleas, while in the summer months the queen of aquatic plants, the tropical water lily Victoria Cruziana, will always fascinate tourists. And more: dahlias and green labyrinths to be discovered!
Also this year you will have the opportunity to purchase a season ticket to visit the Gardens during the entire season or during the entire summer.
The botanical garden also offers a Café & Bistro service, a picnic area in the areas in front of the entrance, allows pets, accessible paths and a bookshop with a varied assortment.
Here is the calendar of events that will alternate during the opening period, weather permitting: the "Bulb Festival" from 8 to 23 April, "Colours without Borders" from mid-April to mid-May, "Water Flowers" from mid-June to the end of October, "Victoria Cruziana" from around 20 June to the end of October, "Dahlia Exhibition" from the last ten days of July to the end of October, "Fall Foliage" from October until the garden closes.
