Gardens of Rome

A week exploring the gardens & ancient wonders of Rome with Rosemary Legrand

  • 4 June 2019
  • 11 June 2019
  • St. Peter’s Basilica by night

It is difficult to think of a city with a richer or fuller history than Rome and, although you may already have visited its wealth of ancient archaeological sites, the focus of this new, escorted tour is the marvellous gardens and villas in the surrounding hills.

Italy has many of the greatest 16th and 17th century gardens in Europe and in Rome we will discover some which have been extensively restored or indeed created in the 20th century including the enchanting Garden of Ninfa, a relatively well-kept secret amongst garden enthusiasts and the Landriana Gardens. We will also visit the perfectly manicured Vatican Gardens, the pope’s private garden at Castel Gandolfo, and the charming Castello Ruspoli and its gardens which are considered one of the purest Renaissance gardens in all of Italy. In the hilltop town of Tivoli, which was a summer retreat for ancient Romans and the Renaissance rich we will visit Villa Adriana, the country estate of Emperor Hadrian and the lavish Villa d’Este, a Renaissance villa with spectacular gardens. No visit to Rome would be complete without a visit to the ancient ruins of the Eternal City and we have a full day tour to explore the legacies of Rome’s 3000-year old history including the Colosseum, The Roman Forum and the Capitoline.

Our tour combines beautiful gardens, enchanting villas, ancient history and delicious Italian food with time in one of the most compelling cities in the world. For our base we have chosen the Hotel Flora in Frascati which has wonderful views and an enviable hillside location away from the city crowds.

HOTEL FLORA, FRASCATI

Originally a family mansion of the late 19th century, after a long and careful renovation, Hotel Flora is now a refined hotel set in a libertystyle, Roman villa. The hotel is surrounded by gardens and is located close to the centre of Frascati, one of the several attractive historic hill towns known collectively as “Castelli Romani”. The area is well known for its wine and its many wonderful restaurants and, at just 20 kilometres from the Historic Centre of Rome, it is a popular resort for those wishing to enjoy the fresh air and escape the confines of the city.

Itinerary

Day 1 - London to Rome, Italy.

Fly by scheduled flight and transfer to the Hotel Flora in Frascati, our base for seven nights. Enjoy a welcome dinner at the hotel this evening. (D)

Day 2 - Villa d’Este & Villa Adriana, Tivoli.

Today we visit two magnificent villas in Tivoli. First we visit Villa d’Este, masterpiece of the Italian Garden. With its impressive concentration of fountains, nymphs, grottoes, plays of water and music, it constitutes a much-copied model for European gardens in the mannerist and Baroque styles. The imposing constructions and the series of terraces above terraces bring to mind the hanging gardens of Babylon, one of the Wonders of the Ancient World. The addition of water – including an aqueduct tunnelling beneath the city evokes the engineering skill of the Romans themselves. The Villa Adriana is an exceptional complex of classical buildings created in the 2nd century AD by the Roman Emperor Hadrian. It combines the best elements of the architectural heritage of Egypt, Greece and Rome in the form of an ‘ideal city’. The Emperor Hadrian built this country villa for himself and his court and it bears unique testimony to the grandeur and architectural and decorative characteristics of the period. Today it exists as an immense park, extending over 80 hectares and dotted with several Roman ruins as well as spas and houses from the 1700s. The grounds also contain the ‘Teatro Marittimo’, an artificial island which was a private residence of the Emperor. We return to our hotel for dinner. (B, D)

Day 3 - Ancient Rome.

Today we take a tour of the Eternal City. This is a highlight of any visit to Rome. We take a panoramic visit of the Colosseum, a vast amphitheatre thought to have been built between 75 and 80 AD and one of the most amazing attractions of the Ancient World. We see the Roman Forum, the political centre of Ancient Rome and then head to the top of the most important of the seven hills of Ancient Rome, the Capitoline, where we enjoy a wonderful view of the city. We drive to Circo Massimo, an ancient Roman chariot-racing stadium and have lunch in a traditional trattoria close by. In the afternoon we visit the world-famous Spanish Steps, a distinctive Baroque staircase that has been a popular meeting place for almost three centuries. In front of the steps, in the narrow but elegant Via Condotti, you can find many of Rome’s finest shops. Next is the glorious Trevi Fountain; admire Nicola Salvi’s wonderful sculptures and maybe toss a coin into its waters to ensure your return to Rome. Continue from here along the Via del Corso to the best-preserved Roman temple, the Pantheon, rebuilt by the Emperor Hadrian around 120 AD and converted to a church 500 years later. Its massive masonry dome is 142 feet in diameter, and 16 solid granite columns support the impressive portico. From here, stroll to the beautiful Piazza Navona, with its magnificent Fountain of the Four Rivers. Return to the hotel for an evening at leisure. (B, L)

Day 4 - Giardino di Ninfa & Giardini della Landriana.

After breakfast we head south for the Garden of Ninfa. The garden was declared a Natural Monument in 2000 and it comprises of: the Medieval ruined town, with its outer walls; the English-style romantic garden dating from the early 20th century; the 17th century Hortus Conclusus; the river and lake with their rare eco-system and the setting itself is culturally, pictorially and environmentally exceptional. Ninfa draws together history, architecture and nature. We take lunch in a rural restaurant with typical local food and afterwards visit the magnificent Gardens of Landriana which are considered one of the most impressive gardens in Italy. Created in 1956, the 10 hectares of garden space were created by an English landscape designer named Russell Page and ordered by the owner of the site, the Marchesa Lavinia Taverna Gallarati Scotti who acquired the land when it was still completely barren. Page divided the garden into 32 different “rooms” with specific characteristics, such as the valley of ancient roses, the orange garden and the blue lawn. Return to the hotel for an evening at leisure. (B, L)
Please note: The Garden of Ninfa offers a limited number of public openings each year because of its delicate environmental balance (plants, birds and insects). The management reserves the right to cancel or to reschedule public openings in the event of bad weather, or other circumstances beyond its control.

Day 5 - Vatican Gardens, Vatican City.

The Vatican Gardens have been a place of quiet and meditation for the popes since 1279 when Nicholas III (Giovanni Gaetano Orsini, 1277-1280) moved his residence back to the Vatican from the Lateran Palace. Within the new walls, which he had built to protect his residence, he planted an orchard (pomerium), a lawn (pratellum) and a garden (viridarium). The event is recorded among other places on a stone plaque which can be viewed in the “Sala dei Capitani” of the “Palazzo dei Conservatori” on Rome’s Capitoline Hill. Created around the hill of Saint Egidio (where the “Palazzetto del Belvedere” is located today) and the courtyards of the Vatican Museums, this was to be the first garden in the Vatican. Over the years more recent gardens have been planted, covering together with the original garden about half of the 44 hectares of Vatican City State. After our guided tour of the gardens we will have some free time to explore the Vatican Museums which display the immense collection amassed by popes over the centuries and the Sistine Chapel with its ceiling decorated by Michelangelo and the Stanze di Raffaello decorated by Raphael. We return to our hotel for dinner this evening. (B, D)

Day 6 - Castello Ruspoli.

This morning we visit Castello Ruspoli. Originally part of the papal estates, the castle was built in 847 AD by Benedictine monks. In the course of its long history the fortress has been occupied by a series of noble families who added important modifications. The first feudal owner was Beatrice Farnese in 1531 who was followed by the Marescotti family. Today, the castle is as it was planned by Ottavia Orsini in 1610. The garden, which still retains its original form, must be considered one of the most beautiful parterres in Italy. Handel was hosted and composed during his Italian years at the castle. We will have a guided tour of the castle and gardens followed by lunch in a local restaurant. Return to the hotel for an afternoon and evening at leisure. (B, L)

Day 7 - Barberini Garden, Castel Gandolfo.

Today we will visit the pope’s summer palace, Castel Gandolfo whose gardens are on the south-west shore of Lake Albano and built over the ruins of an ancient Roman villa, Albanum Domitiani. A guided tour will lead us to discover the natural beauty of the garden including a grand belvedere, a perfectly pruned Italian parterre, and the rich collection of archaeological treasures of the Pontifical Villa Barberini. Afterwards, we continue through the Roman hills to a wine cellar near Frascati where we will enjoy a wine tasting and light lunch. Return to our hotel for an afternoon at leisure. We meet again this evening for a farewell dinner at the hotel. (B, L, D)

Day 8 - Rome to London.

Transfer to Rome airport for our return scheduled flight to London. (B)
