Venezia Royal Garden

It is said that this place used to be loved by Princess Sissi (the future Empress Elisabeth of Austria), for long walks in the wonderful gardens overlooking the Grand Canal and lingering in the cosy Cafehaus surrounded by the vegetation.
Built in the first decade of the 1800s, after the demolition of the granaries during the Napoleonic domination, these gardens were later modified several times.

This prestigious place, a wondrous green area with a strategic value from the environmental point of view, was reopened in December 2019, after some long restoration works.

The Royal Gardens stretch over some 1.23 acres surrounded by water and feature a neoclassical pavilion designed by the architect Lorenzo Santi in the early XIX century. There is also a greenhouse with a central pavilion connected to the historic Cafehaus, and a small facility that houses potted plants and garden maintenance equipment.
Several new plants, recently installed, include 22 tall trees, 832 shrubs, 6.560 herbaceous species, 3.150 bulbous varieties, and 68 creepers that in spring turn the whole place into a colour and fragrance extravaganza.
