The sweeping hill countryside around the eternal city of Rome has a superb collection of gardens – some historic, others recently renovated or created, some influenced by Russell Page. A private visit to Giardino di Ninfa is a highlight of the week. Its setting, variety of plants and flowing water are within an ancient ruined town. It is quite spectacular.
We have added two exceptional gardens to the programme: the Papal Barbarini gardens at Castel Gandolfo and the designer Arabella Lennox-Boyd’s country garden north of Rome.
We stay for three nights in the attractive country town of Civita Castellana in the welcoming four-star Hotel Relais Falisco. Travelling in a comfortable small coach we minimise the travel distances between the gardens. The group will be a maximum of nineteen.
Some hillside gardens with steep flights of steps and terraces.
The gardens of Ninfa are unforgettably beautiful and a perfect time for roses.
