Parco Sigurta’

17 Apr

It’s Palm Sunday for you English speakers out there and this day bears more or less the same the same name in my languages: identical in Italian or Flower Sunday in Romanian.

Therefore, I think it’s the perfect day to introduce you to Parco Sigurta’, a huge park close to Verona, in Valeggio sul Mincio to be more specific. It keeps a low profile, probably because it ‘s relatively close to Gardaland, the famous amusement park in Peschiera del Garda, but it’s nothing short of amazing.

It is easier to reach it by car (in which case there is a huge car park nearby and a free bus that will take you to the entrance) but there are also buses that you can catch in Peschiera del Garda, Mantova or Verona.

The park is huge, you can follow the paths with all the other visitors or take your shoes off and wander barefoot around the grass lawn. Or even, in case the time is short or you’re to tired, take a little train or rent a bike since there is plenty to see: the pond, The Horizontal Meridian, the medicinal herb gardens, the Avenue of the Roses, the Water Gardens, the Buxus and, for the young ones, the Educational Farm full of animals. And don’t forget to bring a blanket!

No matter when you decide to visit the park you’ll be enchanted by tons of beautiful flowers: tulips and hyacinths in April, roses in May, water lilies in the summer and changing colour foliage in autumn, you just have to choose. 

I visited it last year in April, during the tulip flowering and I felt like a fairy in the middle of a fairytale. Before letting the photos speak for themselves I’ll put a link to the official website here and let you know that, if you want to be informed about every flower that has bloomed, just look for the park’s page on Facebook, they add pictures every day. Enjoy!
