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

Was really looking forward to visiting these gardens and having read they are classed as one of the most romantic gardens in the world I was so happy I was in Rome on one of the few days per year when they are open . My rating is based on my visit not on the beauty of the gardens ,... 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

Omg!!! Ninfa is the most amazing place I have visited. With every turn of your head you see a vista better than the one you just viewed. I went with a person who had visited some of the greatest gardens in the worlds and he thought this would be just another garden. He was "gobsmacked" !!!! He had never experienced... More

The Ninfa gardens are an English garden in the middle of Italy. There are plants from all over the world. I felt like I had stepped into the enchanted wood. Built around the ruins of a Medieval town, everything is so natural looking. My only sadness was that they don't allow you to just wander at will. You must stay... More

We are Australians living in Rome, & have wanted to visit Ninfa without joining a huge tour group or busload. We arrived by car too late last year & there were thousands waiting to get in, so this time we left very early & beat the hoards. By the time we returned to the entrance there must have been 600...

Monty Don has a lot to a answer for in describing Ninfa as the most romantic garden in the world, which it is but the publicity generated by his program has attracted hordes of people to the garden and the organisation just can't cope. The garden is sublimely beautiful but to see it in any form of comfort you have... More
