Glorious Gardone: André Heller Botanic Garden

An entrancing surprise during my sojourn in Northern Italy:
After an early-morning ferry across Lake Garda from my hotel in Bardolino, on the eastern side, I set my sights on the lovely town of Gardone Riviera
Strolling up the hill from the waterfront, I dodged raindrops in anticipation of my
visit to the André Heller Botanic Garden.
The Keith Haring sculpture is one of the iconic installations among countless artworks in the garden,
set amidst lavish plantings & paths enlivened by ebullient water features.

The magnificent Dolomites loom above the town of Riva del Garda,
located at the northern edge of the Lake Garda.
