Garden of Oranges (parko Sevello) - Rome

From the top of the Aventine Hill, the tranquil Garden of Oranges (also known as the Parco Savello), affords fantastic panoramic views of the many monuments, roof tops and domes of Rome, encapsulating flavours of the modern and medieval on its shady walkways. Legend has it that the Saint Dominic gave the garden its name, and its first orange tree, having transported the sapling from his Spanish homeland. The tree survives to this day and continues to produce fruit. Since then, more orange trees have been added to the garden, offering welcome shade from the hot Italian sun. The Garden of Oranges is a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban Rome.
