The Valley Garden is another sight worth seeing, located in the town of Cernobbio. The gardens are open all year round and admission is free. Unbelievably, these gardens used to be an illegal dumping ground until the early 1980′s when Signora Ida “Pupa” Frati and the association she founded took over the site. The gardens are well tended and each year a concert is held here. The 19th century lakeside Villa Erba, once home of the famous director Luchino Visconti, is now host to many important events and exhibitions.
