Italy's Lake District has been captivating artists, writers and movie directors for centuries.

Gardening expert and blogger Donna Fenice takes us to some of the area's most beautiful gardens including a baroque extravaganza on Lake Maggiore, a garden in the Romantic English style on the shores of Lake Como, a Tuscan garden created by a homesick exile and a garden inspired by Versailles.

When she is not visiting the gardens of Italy and France - and this spring for the first time of Spain - Donna gets her gardening fix by writing a blog called Loving Italy's Gardens and guiding visitors around the Toronto Botanical Gardens and Allan Gardens.
