The Garden

The garden was designed as a background for the Giusti palace, with terraces arranged in a fashion that allowed visitors to progressively discover the view over the Town by following a specific path.

Situated in front of the 15th-century entrance hall, the famous avenue lined by cypresses climbs up to a grotto with stalactites, overlooked by a grotesque mask built to blow fire out of its mouth.

The belvedere offers one of the finest views of Verona.

In addition to the collections of flowers, important Roman finds and Goethe’s Giant Cypress, the garden still preserves all the original features of the fifteenth century: fountains, acoustic caves, pergolas, Italian-style boxwoods, mythological statues and a small-size but very difficult labyrinth among the oldest in Europe.
