Rome opens rose garden in October for autumn blooms

Rome's autumn roses on display for two weeks.

Rome will reopen the municipal rose garden to the public from Saturday 7 October until Sunday 22 October, the city announced on Wednesday.

The Roseto Comunale will be open every day for the two-week opening, from 08.30-18.00. Visits are free and there is no need to book.

Situated on the eastern slopes of the Aventine hill, overlooking the Circus Maximus, the garden is home to more than 1,200 different varieties of rose, many of which flower in the autumn. 

Rome environment councillor Sabrina Alfonsi described the rose garden as "an enchanting place, in the heart of the city, with a splendid panorama and a unique botanical heritage."

She said that during the garden's two-week opening, visitors will have the chance to "take a nice walk in the greenery and appreciate not only the richness of biodiversity, but also the colours and scents of autumn".

The Roseto Comunale is located on Via di Valle Murcia 6, near the Circo Massimo stop on the Metro B line.

The garden is normally open from late April until the middle of June, as well as for a couple of weeks in October.
