I've been to the garden twice. Since the garden can only be visited with a guided tour, try to check out the dates of the visit to make sure they are open. http://www.fondazionecaetani.org/visita_ninfa.php? Visits are also possible on some public holidays (like Ferragosto - mid of August). But there might be no transportation from the train Station (Latina). This happened... More

Outside the park, the autumn was all around, with the trees loosing naturally its leaves with the season. Inside, it looked as if it was still springtime! In this magical place, you find the tallest olive trees I've ever seen, pines beside banana trees (?!!!) and many ruins. The place was in ancient days a busy city, one of the... More

We went there because I read some recommendations from trip advisor and i was curious to see myself if its worth seeing and really so beautiful as people describe. I have never heard of this place before. We went without making any reservation prior to the visit and it was a mistake. First important think to know for you is... More

We visited by arrangement and - although pricey - we had the whole gardens to ourselves and we able to wander around freely except for the residential areas. Dinner at the nearby Il Piccolo Ducato (recommended by the Director of Giardino di Ninfa) was outstanding - excellent food and the most helpful staff in the world (check opening times).

We just spent the day hiring a car & driving from Rome to visit these gardens & they lived up to expectations. If you are into gardens,this must be on your list. It is a good 1 hr drive & we arrived at 10 .30 & spent 1 1/2 hrs in lines to enter. The tour takes about 1 1/2... More

Since the garden is tightly controlled, my guide in Rome was only able to arrange a visit as part of a thirty person tour given in Italian. She came along to translate for us. My wife and I are both gardeners, in the much colder northeast of the US. She asked me how we could arrange some ruins. And some... More

The garden is definitively worth a visit if you enjoy the nature. It is open only a couple of times a month so check their website before going. End of May/beginning of June is the best period to visit as all roses blossom at that time. Good for the romantic trip;)

For a few years now after watching a gardening special on BBC, I've wanted to see this garden. After just the day before seeing the Rome botanical gardens and being ever so disappointed, this was an unbelievable spectacle. The water was more clear than anything i had ever seen, the plants scattered yet so well grown surrounding the ruins.. Beautiful.... More

This world-class garden has been on my bucket list for years, and I went to Rome especially to see it on my recent trip to Italy. The garden does not disappoint, though the visit is regimented and somewhat rushed. This is understandable, given the need to manage large numbers of visitors in a fragile environment. But it's very difficult for... More
