Giardino Giusti

Giardino Giusti, Verona

The most perfectly formed Italianate garden. Sheer mathematical and spiritual perfection across the river from the historical centre of Verona. It is well worth the walk from the historical centre near the arena but because it takes 15 to 20 minutes to walk there it is not crowded with tourists. You can take ideas from this garden no matter how big your plot at home is.
