Giardino delle Rose

Greenery…we associate verdant colors with food-bearing vegetation — hues that promise nourishment. Just glancing at shades of green can boost creativity and motivation. There are many gardens in Italy that you may visit while you are there. One of the most visited gardens is the rose garden, Il Giardino delle Rose.

Perched on the hillside above Florence, directly under the Piazzale, Il Giardino delle Rose is an oasis of calm with spectacular views of the city. The walled, terraced rose garden was designed by Giuseppe Poggi in 1865 and restored a couple of years ago. The garden contains a number of types of plants (1000 botanical varieties) including lemon trees, waterlilies and a recently added Japanese garden. The main attraction, however, are undoubtedly the 350 varieties of exotic roses. When in bloom, the array of climbers, ramblers, shrub roses and more fill the garden with a heavenly fragrance.

The garden is free to visit and has a pleasingly relaxed atmosphere, with locals and tourists alike sprawled on the grass sunbathing, reading and picnicking. Regardless of the season, the rose garden must be one of the most peaceful and relaxing places in Florence, with views which are only rivalled by those from Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato, both of which are just above the rose garden.

While you are on a holiday in Italy, it is a good idea to visit this place to refresh and rejuvenate your soul from all the historical ruins you have visited in Rome, Pompeii and other places. It is a good idea to hire a car to visit these places of tourist attraction in Italy. Car rental can be a piece of cake with growing number of car rentals in Italy. Car Rental Italy provides the best options to hire a set of wheels to take you to the rose garden as well as in the surrounding places of attraction. They provide car rentals at economical prices, especially to satiate tourist interests in and around the places of attraction in Italy, making your trip a hassle free and pleasurable one, one that you can cherish your holiday forever.
