The Historic Garzoni Garden

Garzoni GardenThe historic Garzoni Gardens are amongf the most beautiful gardens in Italy, representing the happy synthesis between the geometrical forms of the Renaissance and the spectacular beauty of the rising Baroque.
The gardens are a work of art of rare equilibrium, where the greenery, staircases, water fountains and statues constitute something truly unique.

It is an absolutely unforgettable experience to be lost amid this marvelous place of fantasy: caves, theatres made by boxwood hedges, statues representing mythological beings, satyrs, feminine figures, greenhouses with butterflies and bamboo forests.
An ancient, mischievous tradition is that the view was meant to please lovers and — not only for the shadows of foliage and shelters, which permitted kisses and cuddles, but also for the labyrinth, where one finds a symbolic allusion of the walk together for one’s whole life.

As soon as you enter the gardens, you encounter beautiful blooming flowerbeds, statues and two large circular ponds. You can see two majestic staircases, a double flight characterized by a complex hydraulic system which feeds the waterworks.

Through the staircases you reach the three superior terraces. From there you can see the striking staircase of water, flanked by two lady statues that represent two eternal rivals: Lucca and Florence.

At the extreme highest point one finds the statue of Fame who blows in a shell, from which spouts a very high arch of water. Beside the principal route of the garden, one can penetrate the many other lateral avenues and pathways to discover other wonders, from the perfumes of essence, games of shadows and lights given off by the vegetation and the mystery of the labyrinths to the glamour of the sculptures.
