Rome’s municipal rose garden on the Aventine hill opens this year from 21 April until 14 June.
There are two separate sections overlooking the Palatine hill and Circo Massimo: the upper garden with its collection of classic “old roses”, and the lower garden featuring the entries of the prestigious annual international rose competition known as the Premio Roma, which takes place on 16 May, and a collection of winning roses from previous years.
The gardens are home to over 1,000 varieties including a green-blossomed rose from China.
