  • Nice gardens but very controlled environment not much opportunity to contemplate surroundings
  • (to reserve in advance) Walking and guided tour of the gardens is a breathing within Rome. The place are superb and the history of the gardens very interesting.
  • The gardens were nice, nothing special. The guided walk was only 1 hour and a half instead of 2 hours and was not able to visit all the garden
  • Quite a neat park and area.
  • It would be greater if I can visit them without supervising
