Venice's secret gardens

The palaces and buildings of Venice often hide secret gardens behind their high walls. Walking along the city streets you may come across formal gardens, convent orchards, private gardens embellished with sculptures, pergolas and rose arbours, “philosophical” or “author’s” gardens, each with its own story to tell.

Our first stop is a private garden, a secret bower surrounded by buildings, which in spring explodes with an extraordinary flowering of roses in all shades and colours, proudly tended by the lady of the house.

We continue with an “authorial” garden designed by Carlo Scarpa, a great 20th century Italian architect. The space, an oasis of culture and tranquillity, is a contemporary take on the traditional Venetian garden, re-interpreting it through oriental influences.

This is a unique opportunity

to discover the wonders of Venice’s secret gardens.
