We visited this garden on 2 June and found that the roses were already past their best, with barely a single bloom in peak condition, despite being in the recommended time frame for a visit (and despite the fact that my roses back in England have barely put in an appearance yet!). This was really disappointing for us as we love roses. I guess things happen much earlier in the warmer temperatures in Italy. I can imagine that the garden would be a real delight at the right time (probably early to mid May?). We managed to speak to one of the daughters of the founder of the garden as she was dead-heading some flowers and she manages the garden virtually single-handed, with help from another sister at weekends. Given that there are over 6000 plants there, this is no mean feat! I would no doubt have given this visit 5 stars had we seen it at its best, so be very careful when you visit.

What an absolute treat!! My husband and I love gardens and flowers in general, but regardless of this I think you would have to be emotionless to not appreciate this place. With over 6000 different types of roses we found ourselves overwhelmed by its beauty and fragrances!! We were the only tourists there and when we spoke with one of the workers, they advised that they don't advertise so often don't get many visitors. Open May-31st June as this is when the Roses are out in full bloom! Not to be missed!!

If you are into roses this is the place to go. During our visit in mid May the roses where blooming so it was pretty beautiful. With ticket of 6 euros you can access the garden.
