The Rediscovered Gardens of Elisa Bonaparte

Hidden from the public eye, the gardens of Villa Reale of Marlia or “Marly” as Princess Elisa Bonaparte, Napoleon’s sister, used to call them, were greatly desired by the Princess and gave her much joy and happiness during her reign. The gardens are a closely-guarded treasure chest full of secrets, tales, and utterly charming spots. They are an oasis of light and beauty, colour and harmony, and it is possible to exclusively view them in the company of our expert licensed guides. Only by taking a historical, botanical, and architectural tour, can the park and gardens of Villa Reale, silent witnesses to events tied to important historical figures, reveal their past magic and splendour which, today, has been given new life.
