Garden and trails
In the villas and along the streets, there are many paths that allow you to lose yourself in peaceful, fragrant walks among the rich, lush vegetation and the bright colors of the citrus trees. Here the German landscape architect Ludwig Winter designed a Palm-Garden that remains one of the richest collections still in existence in Europe, but Bordighera is also home to the splendid Villa Garnier Garden and, on the slopes of the ancient volcano Monte Nero, the Pallanca Exotic Garden with the largest variety of succulents in Italy. Particularly impressive is the Béodo Trail, along the route of the ancient aqueduct canal. "Here is one of the most exciting walks in Bordighera, which every artist cannot forget, an uninterrupted succession of many nooks and crannies in which form and elegance harmonize," was how the French architect Charles Garnier described it.
