Gardone Riviera, a jewel to be discovered
Gardone Riviera extends along the Brescia side of Lake Garda and is included in the list of the most beautiful villages in Italy. In the 40s it assumed a particular importance because it was the seat of numerous government and residential offices of great politicians.
Gardone Riviera is surrounded by nature which becomes the undisputed protagonist of the place. A bizarre place to see is undoubtedly the André Heller Botanical Garden . In this exotic garden there are Japanese gardens, water lilies, artificial lakes, Dolomite rocks and over 3,000 different vegetative species. Thanks to the particular climate of the area, the plant species live in perfect harmony.
For culture lovers, an obligatory destination is the Vittoriale degli Italiani , wanted by the poet Gabriele d’Annunzio in 1921, it is located near the town and is one of the most visited monuments in Italy, almost 200,000 visitors a year. The Vittoriale includes a huge garden with streams, streets, squares and an open-air theater.
