Sigurtà Garden Park
For visitors who are interested in plants, flowers and meadows, a visit to the Parco Giardino Sigurtà in Valeggio sul Mincio is a must!
The site, awarded "most beautiful park in Italy 2013", is a truly green oasis and an explosion of colours during the times of year the flowers are in bloom. The park is the ideal place to spend a day in touch with nature and its paths can be comfortably visited on foot, with the golf cart (available at the rental) or by bike (one’s own or a rental bike). Visitors can also go on board the mini railway or the electric shuttle bus. Furthermore, children’s urge to run about will certainly be satisfied!
And even if the park offers bars with snacks and drinks, it would be a pity not to have a picnic in the park or in the roofed area of the Tà farm with its educational space entirely dedicated to families, where visitors can meet donkeys, sheep, goats, turkeys and ducks.
- Events 2018
There are many events scheduled for 2018. In March/April the season will start with the "Tulipmania", the fantastic blooming period of more than a million tulips colouring the 600,000 square meters of the park.
Another event that attracts many visitors is the famous "Mille Miglia" which will lead many fantastic vintage cars through the park in May. Also in May, the park will host for the second time the "Buskers Park" with performances by jugglers, tightrope walkers, mime artists, acrobat performers and much more.
In June, animal lovers will enjoy the "Pecoratosando" on the didactic farm where they can watch shearers at work, cutting the woolen fleece of the sheep.
In September, the "magical world of cosplay" will take place: a colourful event, now in its 12th year, dedicated to the Japanese fashion for playing roles from popular fantasy, manga and cartoons! In October there will be the "parade of carriages and dances from the 19th century" transporting you into a fairy tale in one of the most romantic parks in the world.
The season will come to an end in November with the autumn foliage, a show of warm colours that excites photography enthusiasts on a walk around the 600.000 square metres of woods, avenues and lawns.
