Parco Ciani

Overlooking the shores of lake Ceresio, its 63.000 sq. metres constitute the city’s green lung; it’s a quiet place where you can take nice walks and where it is impossible to remain unperturbed by the grandeur of century old trees.

Parco Ciani, thanks to its great location right next to the downtown district, is the place where locals and tourists alike relax, strolling in the shade of century old trees. Many paths cross the beautiful flowerbeds, embellished by statues and fountains, and the perfectly maintained meadows. The park is divided into two different areas. The first one, close to Villa Ciani, is reachable through the main entrance, English-style gardens: large flowerbeds and grassy areas sit in the shadow of trees and plants from all over the world. The second area stretches from the lake shore to the river Cassarate and has a “wilder” look: here you can find oaks, lindens, sycamores and maples, all indigenous to the region, as well as a playground area for kids. Inside Parco Ciani there are a few very important buildings such as Villa Ciani, home to the Museo Civico di Belle Arti, the Palazzo dei Congressi, the boat ramp, the Cantonal Museum of Natural History and the Cantonal Library.
