The gardens are open only on Saturdays and Sundays, and not every weekend, so check opening times before you travel. The guide said she liked the gardens best in spring (as early as March) - they were lush, green and pleasant enough in high summer, but the roses were pretty much over when I visited in early July. I imagine... More

It is undoubtedly the most beautiful, magical, enchanting garden anywhere in the world. If there is anyway you can see this, go, sooner than later, you will not regret it. It was the highlight of my month long trip to Italy. Easy to get to and reasonably priced!

Ninfa is a lesser known city now in ruins which has been at the heart of Central Italian history for centuries which was turned into a spectacular garden by a wealthy family just a hundred years ago. The garden has been defined as "the most romantic garden in the world" by a famous garden historian. Open only a few days... More

Inspired by Monty Don's Italian garden series a trip to Ninfa seemed the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We booked through Airb&b to stay at near by Sermoneta, a perfect little 1 up 1 down apartment owned by Massimo Petrini, 1.5 hours by car from Rome and 15 minutes from Ninfa. We drove the short distance on... More

Interesting garden. Despite being a very famous garden there is no information in any language other than Italian. The conducted tour is only in Italian and very much about the architecture, many guests would like more plant information.

A wonderful and naturalistic garden, very well maintained and also exotic plants that have found the perfect habitat. Garden and medieval ruins and waterways to spend a couple of hours really fantastic. I highly recommend a visit.

Drove about an hour to get here only to find it wqs closed. Alparently, it does not open all the time, so make sure you check before wqsting your time. Fortunatelly for us, we saw the town of Norma on the top of a nearby mountain, and we were surprised by its beauty once we got there.

If you are a " botanical" person you need to go there if you are in this area! Best garden in Europe.
