    Buco di Roma

    September 26, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Eines der kleinen Dinge, die Rom so großartig macht ist das Schlüsselloch Buco di Roma. Schaut man durch das Schlüsselloch eröffnet sich einem einer der schönsten Ausblicke Roms. Durch einen Laubengang führt der Blick unmittelbar auf die Kuppel des Petersdoms. Eine etwas normalere, trotzdem aber nicht weniger schöne Aussicht auf die Dächer der Stadt hat man vom nebenan liegenden Orangengarten aus. Besonders in den Frühlings- und Sommermonaten tragen die Orangenbäume im Park ihre duftenden Früchte.Read more

    Giardino degli Aranci

    May 11, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Nex to the church, is a lovely enclosed garden which belongs/belonged to the church but now is a lovely spacious park space with a gorgeous view and there really are orange trees. Seems a particularly romantic spot.

    The Giardino degli Aranci, Parco Savello or Garden of Oranges is located on Aventino Hill, it is one of the city's most romantic locations and often used as the backdrop for wedding photos. The park is believed to have been created when Saint Dominic brought an orange tree from his native Spain and planted it in the vegetable garden of the adjacent Savelli Castle which housed a monastery. The sapling flourished and additional orange trees were planted. Saint Catherine of Siena is thought to have used the tree's oranges to make candied fruit for Pope Urban VI. The monastery's garden became the park we known today when it was redesigned by Raffaele de Vico in 1932.
    From the Garden of Oranges you can see the Basilica of Santa Sabina and the drawbridge and towers which once formed part of the Savelli Castle. The central promenade leads to a terrace at the highest point of the park where there are sweeping views across some of Rome's most famous structures.
