There is another Venice that we would like to introduce to you, the Venice of aromas, of gardens and parks dotted around it, most of them very beautiful, but tucked well out of sight and largely unknown to the general public.
Great places to take a break and enjoy the intimate gardens or the public parks, are the Napoleonic (Biennale) gardens, the Groggia gardens with its small theatre, the St. Elena pinewood, the Savorgnan gardens, the Papadopoli gardens, the Giardinetti Reali not to mention the museum garden of Ca' Rezzonico, Ca'Zenobio, Ca' Tron or the Cini Foundation and the small landscaped courtyard garden of Querini Stampalia.
And what about the gardens and orchards of the islands? From the Lido with its liberty gardens to S.Erasmo, San Lazzaro degli Armeni, San Francesco del Deserto, or the oasis and parks you have a great choice.
Venice is also green spaces that the genius of its inhabitants has managed to create in the lagoon, so we invite you to deviate from the beaten tracks to discover and get lost in another Venice.
At one time Venice was surrounded by green fields, the squares of the city were used for growing or grazing of animals (hence the origin of the name Campo), but over the centuries, these areas have been gradually covered by paving stones. Nowadays the public gardens area is not very extensive, it is about 120,500 square meters divided into six gardens scattered around the city. These parks are: St. Helena, Napoleon Gardens, Groggia Gardens, Savorgnan Park, Papadopoli Gardens and the Royal Gardens.
