Create an itinerary including Parco del Valentino
Take a relaxing walk through Parco del Valentino, officially opened in 1856 as the country’s first public garden. The vast park contains a botanical garden, a castle, and a medieval village built specifically for the 1884 World’s Fair. The park stretches along the Po River and covers an area of about 50 hectares (124 acres). For the first few decades of the 20th century, the park served as the site of popular car races, the most notable of which was the 1948 Italian Grand Prix. The days of cars speeding over the park’s paved circuit are long gone, but the site still contains a special bench built in honor of Enzo Ferrari, perhaps the country’s best known racecar driver and automotive entrepreneur.

  • Simply mesmerizing. The attention to details is impressive. Huge variety of plants and trees, a lot of shade where you could rest (i recommend by the various ponds or by the stream). Worth a visit is the medieval village, very peculiar.
  • Very large park situated along the Po River. Lots of walking/running paths, many kiosks for coffee/snacks, traffic free. Beautiful scenery. I see something new every time I visit. My only complaint is too many barking dogs.
