NINFA

This little town south of Rome is famous for its English style garden created in 1921 for the family Caetani. It is considered one of the most romantic gardens in the world.

This luxuriant land, rich in water springs, belongs to the family Caetani since the XIII century. The presence of water was not only a resource, but also a curse as malaria ravaged the ancient town of Ninfa which was eventually abandoned by the population until the beginning of the XX century. Caetani’s heirs restored the fascinating ruins of the city and converted this area into a botanical garden of rare charm, an oasis surrounding a little lake and crossed by the homonymous river Ninfa. Ancient walls, bridges and churches are still visible around the castle with its tall tower. And the number of plants and birds are an endless surprise for nature lovers. Few days of public openings are available, but we can have the garden open just for you, a very special treat for a special occasion!

Complete your day trip:

curious wanderers

We suggest a stop at the medieval town of Sermoneta with the castle of the family Caetani, a Renaissance loggia, the cathedral of S. Maria Assunta and its romantic alleys.

archaeo fans

The ancient Norba, a Roman colony of the V century BC, is the stop for you. The city already declined in the I century BC after the “social war”, but the massive walls and the acropolis are still preserved.

spiritual travellers

The Abbey of Valvisciolo is at hand. Unexpectedly in Central Italy you find a Cistercian monastery with the typical bare facade and interiors, the colourful rose window and the silent cloister.
