Grandi Giardini Italiani

Palazzo Parisio is proud to have been invited to form part of the renowned Grandi Giardini Italiani collection. This association heralds some of the most beautiful and celebrated gardens across the Italian region. 

Palazzo Parisio is actually the only garden to be included in the set that is not within the Republic of Italy. An excerpt from the book on the Grandi Giardini Italiani describes Palazzo Parisio as: 

‘… an extraordinary complex of walls and gardens overlooking the sea, an architectural and cultural unicum with the site, though indissolubly linked to the concept of the Italian garden. 
‘The refined architecture of the interiors is made even more precious by the exterior, with the unusual trompe-l’oeil of the eighteenth century Orangery, the fountains and two enchanting plant arrangements created by Sicilian gardeners, both a mixture of Italian-style symmetry and scented, vivid Mediterranean character.’
