The roseto is on the Aventino just opposite the Palatino across from the Circo Massimo and not too far from the Bocca della Veritá. It is easily reachable by public transport and plenty of parking nearby. Thousands of beautiful roses, nice walk around. Maybe more...More

Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is
Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood 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
