The Gardens at Castello Quistini

This was the first excursion we did with my parents. It was just a quick trip really, as they were still recovering from a long, several hours road trip. Doing the same trip twice a year myself, I know just how drained you are after doing nothing for hours but sitting in a car. And yes, even with pauses and trying to stay entertained & engaged.

Castle Quistini is located at Rovato, a small town in the Franciacorta which is the region to the west of Brescia. The gardens are open to public visit during some periods of the year and they also have a space where they host wedding receptions and similar.

Questa era la prima breve gita con i miei genitori. Non tanto impegnativa, perché loro stavano ancora recuperando dal viaggio in macchina durato parecchie ore. Poiché faccio lo stesso viaggio due volte all'anno, so quanto si è stanchi dopo essere rimasti seduti in macchina per ore senza fare nulla. Eh sì, anche con varie soste e provando a tenersi occupati.

Castello Quistini si trova a Rovato, una piccola città in Franciacorta, una zona famosa per il suo vino ad ovest di Brescia. I giardini sono aperti al pubblico durante alcuni periodi dell'anno e all'interno è stato creato uno spazio per ricevimenti in un antico edificio.

Das war der erste Ausflug den wir mit meinen Eltern unternommen haben. War wirklich nur ein ganz kurzer, da sie noch von der mehrstuendigen Reise muede waren. Da ich dieselbe Fahrt ja auch zweimal im Jahr auf mich nehme, weiss ich wie fertig man sein kann wenn man viele Stunden am Stueck im Auto sitzt, selbst mit Pausen zwischendurch und dem Versuch sich zu unterhalten.

Schloss Quistini befindet sich im Herzen Rovatos, einer kleinen Stadt in der Franciacorta, einer Region westlich von Brescia, die fuer ihren Weinanbau bekannt ist. Es ist ausserdem nicht weit vom Iseo See entfernt. Der Garten ist zu bestimmten Zeiten im Jahr offen fuer Besichtigungen, ausserdem hat man die Moeglichkeit dort Empfaenge, wie z.B. bei Hochzeiten, abzuhalten.

Through out the garden, which is kept, but not overly so, and the area ment for receptions, there are these sculptures made out of upcycled materials. All in all it is a very charming and wonderous place.








The outfit is just a quick "toss something on" manouver, as we decided on short notice to head there. Infact, my hair is a bit awkward as well.
