Botanic Treasure Hunting (Villa del Grumello)

Place: Como

Starting date: April 2nd

Ending date: April 2nd

If you look for an idea for the Easter Monday, the Villa Grumello could be your destination.

It is not one of the most famous but at the same time it is a real charming location. The 2nd of April its gardens are open and for child it is possible to be part of a Botanic Treasure Hunting organized by the Association “Grandi Giardini Italiani”.

For child from 5 to 11 years old, Italian speaking but also English, French, Spanish and German speaking, the meeting is held at the Greenhous of the building. They will be very closed to the nature and will know flowers and plants through the games organised for the event.

The Conte Celesia, naturalist and owner of the villa since the end of the 9th century, will be the virtual guide of the young explorer, driving them through the fantastic adventures among the high number of botanic species. As the Conte was used to do they will admire the wonderful viewpoint facing the lake and the mountains.

Before the end of the day they will also realize something that will be held by the Grumello Villa as sign of their tour and that possibly will come back and see in their future.

To participate to this event it is necessary to book the attendance writing to the following mail address info@villadelgrumello.it; the cost is 5 €.

And what will parents do in the meantime?

The gardens are very nice and offers visitors romantic places… so why not enjoy their day whilst child are walking around with Conte Celesia?
