Villa Melzi

The gardens of Villa Melzi
The complex was realized between 1808 and 1810
for Francesco Melzi d’Eril, Duke of Lodi,
vice president of the Italian Republic
under Napoleaon
and successively Grand Chancellor of the Italian Republic.

The Moorish style classical temple
. Orangery (museum)

The garden is rich with rare & exotic plants
The terrace at the lake
. Waterlily pool
Neo-classic style villa

Villa Melzi
Lungolago Marconi

Someone's private villa!
The weather was quite foggy on Friday
As exiting the garden from the other end,
arrived to San Giovanni
On the way back to Vergonese
somehow took a wrong path up (death end!)…
walked back and took the normal way up
Old boats at San Giovanni

If had a scooter,
it would look like this!
Street of San Giovanni
