The Arco Arboretum is located in the Lower Sarca plain, the wide and scenic basin on the northern bank of Lake Garda. The area was originally part of the estates of the Archduke Villa, built in 1872 on behalf of Albert of Habsburg. It was renovated in 1964, and specifically dedicated to the conservation of trees and shrubs.
Today, the Arboretum covers an area of more than one hectare and contains some 150 plant species from all over the world (including Monterey cypress, cedars, a huge sequoia, palms, orange trees, lemon trees, yews, Holm oaks and a magnificent Lawson cypress which is shaped like a candelabrum).
All species are individually labeled with their Latin binomial, family, common name and place of origin. Multilingual information display boards (in Italian, English and German) are located throughout the Arboretum, to allow for better understanding and enjoying of the rich botanic heritage.
The Arboretum is located in Via Lomego (Arco, TN), at the beginning of the road that takes to Laghel.
