Garden sights in Italy
- Sort by:
Known to Romans as the Giardino degli Aranci (Orange Garden), this pocket-sized park is a romantic haven. Grab a perch at the small panoramic terrace and watch the sun set over the Tiber and St Peter’s dome. In summer, theatre performances are sometimes staged among the perfumed orange trees.
Up to half the Vatican is covered by the perfectly manicured Vatican Gardens, which contain fortifications, grottoes, monuments and fountains dating from the 9th century to the present day. Visits are by two-hour guided tour only, for which you’ll need to book at least a week in advance.
