Splendid Villa Melzi d’Eril was built in early the 19th century by Francesco Melzi d'Eril. Francesco was Vice President of the Italian Republic during the Napoleon’s rule in Italy. The villa was constructed in Neoclassic style and it represents a true architectural beauty but what is even more beautiful are the gardens that are extended on 800 meter long coast line.
Here visitors may see ancient trees and exotic plants such as cedars of Lebanon, Ginkgo biloba, red beeches and camphor. However, plants are not the only thing one can see here. The gardens also host all manner of valuable monuments and statues. Gardens also host a private chapel, several Egyptian statues from the Napoleonic period and the orange groves.
