  • Join a guide and walk around the ornamental garden of Palazzo di Varignana, part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani network, and stop by the Claternate Mosaic from the 1st century BC
  • Visit the garden's theme rooms and see the park's private collection with five olive trees; you can even add an optional tasting
  • Take your visit up a notch with optional extras including an e-bike ride, or a fully-prepared gourmet picnic overlooking a vineyard


If Bologna's natural beauty somehow isn't enough, then the landscaped gardens of Palazzo Varignana are guaranteed to impress. A tour guide will show you the formal gardens that blend countryside and nature seamlessly.

If you want to embrace everything Palazzo Varignana has to offer, then you can join an olive oil tasting with an oil sommelier, take an e-bike ride, or even picnic as you overlook an octagonal vineyard and the gullies of the Parco dei Gessi.
