Oriental garden

 

Coming into the property from the Bellagio entrance on the left side is placed a small oriental garden realized in the second half of Nineteenth century. Its characteristic imprint is a water-lilies pool and nippon acer plants; this is the only point where plants hide the lake view to visitors. At the northern extremity of the pool you can see the opening to an artificial cave over hung by a small stone bridge and by a fait ruin designed by the architect Luigi Canonica.
