Behind an inconspicuous gate hides wonderful creation of landscape designers of Florence, where are the scents of roses and citrus trees grow.
The Rose Garden (Giardino delle rose), is located on the hill of San Miniato, just below Piazzale Michelangelo, with the inconspicuous gate. The Rose Garden is about one hectare, on the green lawns you can freely walk, take a nap, and sit down with a book.
This secret place was built after the capital of Italy was moved to Florence, and since then here often visit the locals and experienced travelers seeking a break from the crowds in the shade of citrus trees.
In the Rose Garden are many rose bushes, whose smell spreads throughout the garden. Here are the benches and paths lead to the terrace overlooking the city.
