We visited on a Monday at the end of April and although it was pretty crowded, the best of the roses had already faded. Most all of them were still in bloom but they were undeniably past their peak. Also, it was much smaller than we expected. I'm sure that if we had been able to visit a few weeks... More

We saw her, but could not get in, although roses are blooming. Opens to the public in late April. Located opposite the Circo Massimo.

Visited Rome in May 2012. Our driver to our bnb pointed out the gardens en route. We never made it in the first couple days. Then we had a tour of Italy to go on. When we got back to Rome, we took the metro to the coliseum because we remembered we had seen the hilltop gardens by there when... More

Rome`s communal rose gardens, a 100.000 square foot area, opens every spring to Rome`s locals and visitors; beautiful roses in every color are tended by Antonello Santell and his staff of gardeners. Here you can admire over 1.100 species of colorful roses and last not least the Belle Portuguese oldest bush with posted on a thick stam. Shaded by umbrella... More

The roseto is on the Aventino just opposite the Palatino across from the Circo Massimo and not too far from the Bocca della Veritá. It is easily reachable by public transport and plenty of parking nearby. Thousands of beautiful roses, nice walk around. Maybe more apt for people into flowers but overall a good complementary site to see in Rome.... More

Surely, it's one of the most rewarding nature experience in Rome. Hundreds of rose varieties in one place is something unbelievable. Extended opening times (daily from 8.30 a.m. till 7.30 p.m.), free entry and even the possibility to walk on grass to better observe (and smell) the roses - what else one needs for perfect joy? Opening season for 2016... More

If you are near Circus Maximus, walk over and enjoy a few moments to ahhh.... smell the roses. It really is a pretty garden, with ruins giving it a nice backdrop. It is also very close to the orange garden (up the hill) and the Knights of Malta keyhole. Worth a look if you have the time.

Rome's Rose Garden is open for a brief period each spring. and it is beautiful and well worth visiting. Very popular with Roman families. The roses are gorgeous. Sadly, the garden was once a Jewish cemetery that was destroyed by Mussolini during one of his building sprees, when ancient places were bulldozed to make straight new streets. Today, part of...

Staying in Aventine

Neighbourhood Profile
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.
