One day full of colours, charm and imagination at GIARDINI SIGURTA’


Parco Giardino Sigurta’, in Valeggio sul Mincio and  a few km far from Peschiera is  certainly a marvel  to behold  while  staying  at the bed  and breakfast I Costanti.  

One of the 5th  most  wonderful parks in the world, Parco Giardino Sigurtà, 560.000  square mts  green area,  was once  extraordinary garden of Villa Maffei  and was  at first designed  by one of Andrea Palladio‘s pupils, called Il Pellesina. 

In the 19th  century it  became  Napoleon the 3d  ‘s headquarter, but it is  mainly  thanks to Carlo Sigurta’  and  his nephew Enzo and to their lovely and meticulous care and  love that  we  can admire  such a  unique  beauty  today. They turned those  ancient dry hills  into green  lands by drawing  waters  from the river Mincio and  designed the first prototype of the park.
