This may be the most famous botanical garden in northern Italy with a heritage of more than 20.000 varieties and species of particular botanical value. In 1931, Scottish Captain Neil McEacharn started collecting and acclimatising plants from all over the world in this corner of Italy that reminded him of his native Scotland.
After his death, he was buried in a chapel built in the garden for this purpose.
Today the garden dresses in different colours with every flowering. The tulips blooming in April is a particularly popular event, just like the waterlilies in summer and the dahlias in autumn, along with many others.
