| Sigurta Park - one of the top 5 most amazing parks in the world. It is located near Verona in Valeggio sul Mincio. There was a park next to the Villa Maffei, which in 1941 over 800 thousand. Lire bought the Milanese industrialist Giuseppe Carlo Sigurta. Soon it becomes clear that the purchase was a surprise, the garden was in the form of neglect due to lack of water .. But Carlo Sigurta restored ancient family the privilege to use for irrigation waters of the river Mincio and pay a fine family Maffei, began with the creation of a masterpiece of garden art. His work was continued by his nephew Enzo. For the public park opened in 1978 |
Its territory is impressive - 56 hectares and includes a 7 km route.. Nekazhdy dare to bypass it on foot, so you can rent a bike or golf -kar, and you can drive around on a panoramic road train. By the way, and you can use their own bikes. Pedestrians and "Ezdakov" do not interfere with each other, because routes for the preparation of these separate, often in parallel with each other. And besides, what is especially nice, you can walk everywhere on the lawns. Many come with Kuzovkov and blankets and arrange a picnic on the grass (no fires by itself). I just breaks through his tears, looking at the "right" youth with backpacks with soft drinks. And I noticed a lot of chic romantic spots for lovers. Even if you do not tune in for a long outing, still I advise you to take along something to snack on fast, because the views are not spoiled with all sorts of stalls.
The park is closed in the winter, at other times of the year are guaranteed to catch the rapid flowering. The beds are scattered throughout the territory. The most significant beds consist of tulips, irises, begonias, lilies, asters ... and roses, roses, roses in warm weather set of artificial ponds cover the blooming water lilies, including glimpses of tropical fish.
We were on March 16, and my hope of seeing the sea flowering tulips did not come true. Pleasuring eyes only the earliest grades. In the beginning I was a little upset, but then I thought that, say, two weeks later, I have not found daffodils, hyacinths ... However, I, as a lover of botany in general, it was interesting to admire and beautiful shrubs and a variety of majestic trees, which are also the pride of the park complex.
All because you can describe to infinity. General recommendation - when the opportunity to visit! Now a few photos, and then continue.
Daffodils, those whom they love
