It is always a pleasure to walk through the ridle of flowers of this garden with my kids. It remains as I met it, maybe 40 years ago, colorful and sunny. No doubt, this is one of the spots of the city.

A beautiful garden with old roman arches. It’s near the other key sites. Not over crowded. Be sure to take the tram up the hill and walk down the many steps from the church

It's a small garden with a backdrop of a castle wall (cant go up to the wall). In May, it was in full bloom with Rose's the size of a 3 tennis balls. Lots of photo ops. 5 minute walk from the arch.
