The original garden of the Villa del Vescovo, from the 16th century, was made up of various levels and divided into walled quads with avenues and pergolas supported by columns. Following the transformations over the years, two elegant gardens have been preserved. One is a raised (or ‘hanging’) garden, occupying the terrace of the lower enclosure, and is made up of a lawn with a majestic blue Magnolia grandiflora at its centre. The other is an example of a formal Italian garden of geometric design, sitting within the supporting walls. The design of this second garden is characterised by strict, well-defined lines: low, square beds of Euonymus ‘Pulchellus’ form rectangles containing potted spherical topiary. Paving featuring orange and blue gravel provides a touch of colour.
