The Botanical Gardens of Villa Taranto will be open every day, including holidays, from Thursday 15 March to Sunday 3 November 2019 (in March - 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, from April to September - 8:30 am to 6:30 pm, from 1 to 14 October - 9 am to 5 pm, from 15 to 31 October - 9 am to 4:30 pm, and from 1 to 3 November - 9 am to 4 pm). During the month of March, all of the spring flowers will begin blooming: edgeworthia, prunus, magnolia, forsythia, daffodils and tulips. As the season progresses, visitors can admire large patches of hundreds of rhododendrons and azaleas, and in the summer months the queen of aquatic plants, the Victoria Cruziana tropical water lily, will entertain tourists. Other attractions are lovely dahlias and intriguing green mazes!
This year, guests will also have the chance to purchase an admission pass to visit the Gardens during the entire opening season, or during all summer months. If the weather permits, the following events will be held during opening season: “Tulip Weeks” (7-28 April), “Colours without Borders” (from mid-April to mid-May), “Orchids…charm and mystery” (4th and 5th May), “Water Flowers” (June through August), “Victoria Cruziana in Flower” (20 June through the end of October) and the “Dahlia Exhibition” (from the last week in July to the end of October).
Lastly, do not forget that discounts are available for FAI members during “FAI Weeks”, for local residents during “Tourist in your City”, and the “Passeggiata con gusto” on Sunday, 23 June, Sunday 7 July, and Sunday 11 August, which involves a walk through the flowers with typical foods from the area (information: www.villataranto.it).
