We found this place via Monty Don's excellent documentaries that have inspired our visits to other gardens. Monty Don was not exaggerating: this may very well be one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful garden in the world. Surreal. Tranquil. Mesmerizing. The historical interviewing of ruins, nature, gardening and careful management creates an unforgettable melangé. For foreign... More

The NY Times called this "one of the world's most romantic gardens" - and it lives up to its reputation, and more. No time of year could be better to visit than spring, when 150 species of roses clamber upon the picturesque ruins of a 13th century village owned by the aristocratic Caetani family for hundreds of years. Excellent guide... More

It is a very beautiful place where the only sounds one hear are from the birds and the flowing streams. Contrary to popular belief that it is remote and not easily accessible, it is actually doable without a car. There is a shuttle that picks up visitors from Latina train station and takes them back to the station on days... More

A truly wonderful setting where the trees, shrubs and climbers are beautifully planted and maintained. Likewise the water features, but the handful of borders verged on the pitiful in early October when the opportunities for a blaze of colour were legion. The actual organisation of the open days has improved – not merely is it possible to book tickets on... More

The Ninfa Gardens are simply exquisite and these are guided tour only gardens, as there are strict rules with staying on the paths. Have been wanting to see them for a long while but every time we ended up in Italy they were never open, as there are limited public openings each year, check their website for opening times.

The garden is just stunning but you cannot access it without a guide who never spoke any other language than italian!!! So thoughtful for foreigners who have to wait the end of the speach at every spot without understanding anything and without being able to wander around. When we finally snuck out of the group (the guide was speaking 10... More

I visited today and was not impressed. Perhaps because I'd heard so much about this garden, perhaps because I'm from the tropics and we have spectacular public gardens/parks or maybe it's just that I was totally irritated to find no information at the site in English. All Italian!! Our group comprised 75% foreigners who basically wandered off every time the... More

It's a little oasis at the foot of the hills of Norma, it has its own micro climate and the gardens are a wonder. We went in Spring and it was worth the guided tour, we hope to return in the Autumn to see it in a differing light.

This really is a haven of tranquility. We have been trying to visit for nearly two years, but the gardens limited opening times never coincided with one of our trips until now. Well worth the wait and the hype surrounding the garden didn't disappoint. You are not able to stroll round the garden independently, and have a guided tour which... More
