The first Italian Butterfly House, is one of the more visited attraction of the Province of Padova. The Living Butterfy exhibition is one of the first realized in the world and was opened in 1988. It includes about 1,500 square meters covered with various living exhibitions (the Eden butterfly gardens, Amazon, Indoaustralian) which include many free butterflies in their natural habitat and many other species of animals and plants from many tropical countries. In addition to this, during holidays, or by appointment for groups and schools, are active many interactive workshops and fun activities in the Fairy Wood (6000 square meters on a mythological nature trail). The Butterfly House is part of the circuit MicroMegaMondo of Butterfly Arc, which also includes the Great Exploratorium Esapolis, the Living Museum of the Province of Padua. The MicroMegaMondo of Butterfly Arc has been licensed by the Zoological Garden, issued by the Ministries of Environment, Agriculture and Health, and is engaged in conservation projects, education and scientific research and offers to young people and students, internship opportunities and traineeships. The park also offers picnic areas, ample free parking, accessibility for the disabled and an interesting themed shop. The facility is located in the center of Montegrotto Terme (one of the largest spas across Europe with a great deal curative thermal cares, playful and well-being), close to an important archaeological site from Roman times and near the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills.

The butterflies are plentiful and colourful we learnt so much about them and the dragons. Then ending the visit in the fairytale garden was definitely the cherry on the top.More

The butterfly displays and information boards were excellent but, from a personal point of view, there was too much space given to the stories of elves, ogres etc!!

Well worth a visit if you're staying in Montegrotto. To walk amongst dozens of different butterfly species is a fantastic experience and is a delight for children.

Good experience for younger children. Many different varieties of butterflies from several continents. They like to land on sweet-smelling children! (wear yellow or red!) Check out their website for more info.
