Garden of Oranges (Giardino degli Aranci) Tours

A lush garden overlooking Roman rooftops and domes, the Giarino degli Aranci was once an ancient fortress and now offers some of the best panoramic views of Rome. Full of orange trees, there are many benches and grassy areas to relax on and escape the bustle of the city. Views stretch across the skyline from Trastevere all the way toward St. Peter’s Basilica. 

Legend says that Saint Dominic planted a single bitter orange tree in the courtyard of the nearby Basilica di Santa Sabina in 1200 AD. It is said to be the first orange tree in the whole of Italy, and today the gardens have a pleasant orange aroma from the groups of many trees. 

Upon entering the gardens, visitors can see the face of Giacomo Della Porta's fountain, believed to have been made in reference to the river god Oceanus. Overlooking the Tiber River, it has been called one of the most romantic spots in Rome.

Practical Info

Open from dawn to dusk, the Garden of Oranges is within the Parco Savello, on Via di Santa Sabina on the top of the Aventine Hill.  It is nearby to the Piazza Pietro d’Illiria. The nearest metro stop is Circo Maximo. Admission is free.
