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 gardens or in the covered area of the Tà farm with its educational space entirely dedicated to families, where visitors can meet donkeys, sheep, goats, turkeys and ducks.
The Sigurtà Garden Park is open every day from March to November from 9 am to 7 pm (March, October and November until 6 pm). The price of the ticket is € 14.50 for adults and € 7,50 for children up to 14 years, children under 4 years are for free.
