Not sure if it is really the biggest rose garden, but it is simply awesome. We spend hours walking and sitting on the benches and took photos. It was very hot but could not get ourselves away. Colours and smells and beauty. Do not miss this. We had the garden almost for ourselves, only an hand full of other visitors.

A beautifully fragrant garden, and one I would recommend on your journey towards the famous keyhole or the Mouth of Truth. Hundreds of different varieties .... The fragrance is overwhelming. Highly recommended.

This garden is enjoyable at any time of the year, and the fragrant beauty of the roses is a fitting tribute to all the martyrs who died in the nearby Circus Maximus.

A must visit for flower lovers, especially rose lovers. The gardeners will introduce many kinds of roses here as well as how to plant them. You may learn a couple of rose poems and buy some roses to carry home with you. We would prefer call this the garden of love.

If you have a chance (a find it open) and if you are a flower lover, try this unusual garden by the Circus Maximus with hundreds of roses from all over the world. The colors and the perfume are superb. A fun place.

We love flowers and plants and we spend a great deal of our time cultivating them, so this was a very special place for us to visit and just stop and smell the roses. We loved the fact that there were so few tourists.
