Municipal Rose Garden – A free spring attraction off the beaten path in Rome

Curious about visiting more than a thousand blooming roses in the Eternal City?

A view of Municipal Rose Garden Rome

The Municipal Rose Garden opens just a couple of months in Rome, this year from 21 April to 19 June everyday (including Sundays and holidays) h. 8.30 am-7.30 pm (Closed: 20 May for the “Premio Roma” competition).

This garden in central Rome, at the foot of the Aventine Hill, and very close to Circo Massimo, hosts 1100 varieties of roses, ancient and modern, from all over the world, in an area dedicated to flowers since the Roman age, that also hosted a Jewish cemetery until 1934.

The Municipal Rose Garden in Rome is also close to the Ostiense/Testaccio area, with the amazing Rome’s non catholic cemetery, the Pyramid of Cestius, Eataly or even the new Testaccio market, a cool destination for an informal lunch or snack.
