You can visit and admire the blooms of its more than 1,000 varieties of roses from Tuesday to Sunday, from 08.30 to 19.30 and the ENTRANCE IS FREE!!!

The Rose garden is located within the walking distance from Circo Massimo metro station - Via di Valle Murcia, 6!

The park was established in 1931. Over 1100 varieties of roses are ready to bloom there, many of them gifts from countries around the world. It is one of the most prestigious botanical collections of roses in the world, which allows us to trace the history and evolution of the rose from antiquity to the present day. The cultivated specimens come from the Far East up to South Africa, from Old Europe up to New Zealand, passing through the Americas. There are primordial species (botanical roses) that date back to 40 million years ago, very precious and little known, together with ancient roses, all of great originality and beauty.

The Rome Rose Garden covers 10,000 m square and each section has rose varieties characteristic of, or grown in, the respective variety. The park also has an experimental section where new varieties of roses are tested for their suitability for public and private gardens in Italy.

The rose garden can be visited by people with disabilities as well. Small dogs are allowed on a leash.
