The area
Neighborhood: Aventine
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighborhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.
How to get there
  • Circo Massimo • 5 min walk

Beautiful rose golden with an amazing selection in the ray of the different species of rose. Built on what was a Jewish Cemetry They have honored it in the design of a menorah. Overlooking the circus maximus. The whole front row is full of artist painting roses.

This was a beautiful escape from the busy city, quiet and serene. Loved to see all the different roses, there was a lot of space to walk between them and take a closer look without damaging them. Quite a lot of people, but it didn't feel crowded.

We were lucky, the weather was great, and the rose garden a short walk from the hotel. We have never seen so many varieties - all labelled for the ignorant - beautifully laid out, and blooming furiously when we visited (early May). And it's free! What could be better value than that?

At the foot of the Aventino, in the spring, will open the gates of one of Rome's most romantic gardens. A lot of 1100 species of roses bloom in a riot of colors and scents that make it even more valuable for nature and a place that is already magical place.
From here, in fact, you can enjoy a splendid view of the Circo Massimo and Colle del Palatino forgetting the city traffic.

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.

We visiited in early May, and many of the roses were in full bloom. It is definitely worth a visit this time of year. Also, it is impressive how they honored this land’s previous use with the layout of the walkways

Hint #1: look at it from a satellite view, and you’ll see a shape that may be familiar.

Hint #2: one of the rare public rest rooms can be found here.

Saw this beautiful event while on a Segway tour of Rome. We got lucky that this was going on during our visit. Stopped in for a few sniffs of the roses and some photos.

I’m sure these gardens are pretty but they are open from mid May to mid June only!!! When we got there after a long hot walk we watched many others get to the gate to see the same thing. Surely a city of this size can have the gardens open for 6 months atleast. Roses flower for months!!

Roseto Comunale is a Free entry attraction.It is beautifully laid out, and blooming furiously when we (my friends and I) visited. At the foot of the Aventino, Rome's most romantic gardens comes into life. A lot of 1100 species of roses bloom in a riot of colors and scents that make it even more valuable for nature and a place that is already magical place.
It Is a beautifully fragrant garden, and one I would recommend on your journey towards the famous keyhole or the Mouth of Truth. There are hundreds of different varieties and the fragrance is overwhelming.
It was wonderful, especially if you're traveling with a botanist. I love roses a lot as they are very beautiful. The garden varies in levels of height, so you have a nice view at some parts.
It was nice to walk through with great views of the forum in the distance but I've seen nicer gardens. From here, in fact, you can enjoy a splendid view of the Circo Massimo and Colle del Palatino forgetting the city traffic.
Beautiful fragrant roses, and a place to sit and enjoy a picnic on the way to the famous keyhole of the Knights of Malta building. You can see the circus Maximus from here too. All in all a restful beautiful stop. I’m not sure whether if it is really the biggest rose garden, but it is simply awesome. We (my friends and I) spend hours walking and sitting on the benches and took photos. It was very hot but could not get ourselves away as the colours, smells and beauty made us to stay there.
Do not miss this. We had the garden almost for ourselves with only a hand full of other visitors. I recommend you to visit the attraction

I went on a hot Sunday afternoon in May. Only at that time the upper part of the garden was open to public. The lower part was closed. Do not forget to bring water and sun cream as there is very little shade. Of course a Sunday will be crowded but I managed to find a spot on one of the few benches at the highest part of the garden in the shade. And I watched, and watched all the people go by. At the higher part of the garden the roses are lingered around a pergola so easy to see and smell. At the center are the smaller roses located. Big flowers but small and close to the ground. For making pictures you can sit on the grass next to the roses. A lot of painters were there as well to paint roses which gave it a nice atmosphere. There is also a big heart of roses, very lovely to make a picture once standing in front of it. I spend something like 2 hours there as I like roses and took it easy as it was very warm. But you can easily see everything in just one hour. No entrance fee. Highly recommended.
