The event organised in conjunction with the main gardens of the Grandi Giardini Italiani network is back, scheduled for Monday 1st April!

Desire to explore, lunch basket and picnic blanket will be the elements for a fun-filled day with friends!

On Monday 1st April from 10am to 6pm, Villa Reale di Marlia is ready to host the event signed by Grandi Giardini Italiani, reached its 27th edition.

Participate is very simple:  purchase the ticket online in the dedicated section of our shop, send an email (at least on 27/03) so to request the english version of the clues, then arrive at the entrance of Villa Reale on the day on event whenever you prefer from 10AM, no later than 4pm (otherwise you will have to rush to find the treasure!) where you’ll receive the map to start discovering our garden.

A proposal created to bring children closer to the huge plants’ heritage of our park, spending a day with family and friends.

We are already at work to create a new path that will lead little explorers to discover the world of plants, amidst curiosity and riddles. There will be ten clues that will allow you to find where the treasure is hidden.

To complete the day ‘en plein air’, all you have to do is enjoy a picnic in the areas around the lake: bring everything you need or let yourself be delighted by the proposals of the Villa Reale Café and of Mixi Gastropub!

You will find sandwiches and cakes at the Cafés of Villa Reale, while Mixi Gastropub will have grills for Hot Dogs, Cheeseburgers and Pulled Pork!


Who is the hunt for? Children aged 3 to 9 – the little ones can still enter the park and play with their families.
How does it take place? Children go in search of the botanical treasure together with their families and friends following the map given at the entrance gate. Once you have found all the clues and solved the riddles, you will find out where the treasure is! Each child will take home a small prize.
