VILLA ANNONI PARK

It is 23 hectares wide and it represents one of the most meaningful examples of park of neo-classical Lombardy period.

It owes much to the values of Enlightenment. It shows all its beauty due to the dimensions, the botanic and historic-cultural heritage. It is a great example of landscape integration, because of the natural woods, century and monumental plants, irregular paths through the English garden and among arboreal essences which are noteworthy for their rarity.

You can enjoy a delightful and vivid view in some points of the Park, which are created by the light and shadow of botanic heritage, the main view is the so-called perspective telescope in front of the Villa.

You can enjoy the gardens choosing among botanic and naturalistic or artistic and educational itineraries. They can be tailor-made on your needs and requests, even adaptable to school groups over the age of 4 years-old.
