Italian Garden at Biltmore

The Italian Garden on the Biltmore Estate is probably my favorite garden on the property. I love water features, and with two large ponds full of koi, lily pads and other water-loving plants, the Italian Garden really delivers!

A statue of Diana, Goddess of the Hunt, is positioned on the landing between the entry to the Italian Garden and esplanade.

This is a nice view of one of the ponds in the garden with the Biltmore House in the background.

I love the different colors of lily pads.

The ponds were stocked full of giant Koi. This white one was my favorite.

Yeah, it's my favorite too. I wish the sky had some clouds in it that day though!
