‪Pleasant gardens on top of the Palentine Hill, with plenty of green to relax in after all the walking. There is an excellent viewing platform with a superb view of the Roman Forum.‬

‪The Farnese Gardens, or Horti Farnesiani, are on the Palatine Hill (one of the seven hills of Rome, historically the oldest) within the Roman Forum. They are above the House of the Vestal Virgins and the Arch of Titus. They are beside the Domus Tiberiana on the top of the hill. From this location, visitors have magnificent views across the entire Forum and of the Colosseum. These gardens were created by Cardinal Alessandro Farnese in 1550 on the northern slopes of Palatine Hill. These first private botanical gardens of Europe were terraced, featuring aviaries, with exotic birds, and ancient sculptures. A bit of a misnomer, the "gardens" are indeed areas for plants but also included some wonderful ornate buildings. Most of the gardens were destroyed by archaeological excavation of the imperial ruins at the beginning of the 20th century, with only a fragment of the originals surviving. The remaining portions were restored and only re-opened to the public in the Spring of 2018. Although these gardens have historical significance in Rome, sadly the area below them filled in not only by centuries of erosion but also purposely during the construction of the gardens, conceal more ancient ruins of the imperial era of Rome. Sadly, these other buried aspects of the Forum will probably never be uncovered. Nonetheless, this is an area which should be seen while visiting Rome.‬

‪The Farnese Gardens were the first private Botanical Gardens in Europe. The gardens on Palatine Hill overlooks the Roman Forum and is near the Arch of Titus. Not receiving many visitors, the terraced gardens provide an oasis of peace and quiet with shady walking paths, fountains and statues. From the terrace of the gardens, commanding views of the Capitoline Hills and the Roman Forum can be enjoyed.‬

‪You can't visit Rome without seeing the Horti Farnesiani upon the Palatin Hill.

Created around the1560 within the world's largest archeological site of ancient Rome, the Horti Farnesiani were probably the first botanical gardens in Europe.

This breathtaking and amazing site overlooks the Roman Forum and is near the Arch of Titus. It is definitely one of the best kept secret treasure of the Eternal City.

You can't miss a journey in the history of this unique place, starting in the time when the Gardens and its Renaissance Villa were the symbolic and grandiose summer home of the Farnese dynasty that includes Pope Paul III and his grandson Cardinal Alessandro, passing trough the romantic season of European Grand Tours, and finally reaching the 1900s, when the great archaeological excavations began on the ancient Roman hills revealing the full magnificence of the Palatin and the Roman Forum.

Despite their stunning and spectacular grandeur the Farnese Gardens are still very little known, so they are a real treasure of Rome to discover.

Just imagine that, in the turbulent Seventies, the Horti Farnesiani where the secret place were most revolutionaries were used to have their secret meetings.

What else?‬

‪Moving up from the heat of the dry forum to this leaved area with plenty of shade is a lovely way to break up a walk around ancient Rome. There are drinking water fountains to refresh yourself and plenty of gardens and then ruins to look around as well.

It's off the beaten path a little bit and not too obvious this is included in your forum ticket as a lot will just see the colloseum and head straight for it.‬

‪One of the interesting attractions you can see at Palatine Hill is the 16th century Farnese Gardens found at the northern side of the hill, near the overlook, which peers down into the ancient Roman Forum.

In 1550, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, bought this section of land and converted the ruins here into a lush garden, which is historically recognised as the first Botanical Garden in Europe, featuring plants from all over Italy and other areas of the continent. Unfortunately, the gardens were mostly destroyed during excavations works during later centuries.

Today, there is a small yet lovely landscaped area, fountain pools as well as two relic pavilions, from the time when this was a private botanical garden, which visitors can see and enjoy when visiting Palatine Hill.

In the end, the Farnese Garden is a nice spot for pictures and an attractive area to spend a bit of time before or after seeing other ancient building sites here. For another good picture stop, you can take in nice views of the two pavilions from the grounds of the Roman Forum just below Farnese Gardens.‬
