Rose garden opens for 2023 edition of Natale di Roma.
Rome will reopen the Roseto Comunale, the municipal rose garden on the Aventine Hill, to mark the city's 2,776th birthday on Friday 21 April.
Located on the eastern side of the Aventine hill overlooking the Circus Maximus, the rose garden will be open for free from 08.30 to 19.30 until 11 June.
The garden is divided into two sections: the higher section features a collection of classic specimens while the lower garden contains the roses reserved for the Premio Roma, the prestigious international contest to judge the most beautiful rose in the capital.
Il 21 aprile riapre al pubblico il Roseto Comunale. In occasione del Natale di Roma, come da tradizione, apre i suoi cancelli alla zona collezioni fino all'11 giugno. Ingresso gratuito e possibilità di prenotare visite guidate.
