One of the best rose gardens in Lazio will be on display for a Festival of Roses on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May when the Marchesa Patrizi opens her garden at Castel Giuliano to the public. The estate gardens surround the big square three-storey farm castle, which stands on a high island of tufa (volcanic rock) facing Cervetari and the sea, and they encompass the church of S. Fillipo Neri in the grounds. The planting of the garden has been the work of the Marchesa Umbertina Patrizi and shows a garden style that is rarely found in public parks in Italy. There are more than 1000 rose bushes, including fine climbers on the castle walls.
