Rome

Garden of Orange Trees

37 Via Di Santa Sabina
Parco Savello-Piazza Pietro d’Illaria
Rome, 00153, Italy

The Garden of Orange Trees (Giardino degli Aranci) by the Santa Sabina church pays homage to the namesake Spanish tree. The first orange tree planted in Italy, by Saint Domenic in the 13th century, continues to grow in a separate courtyard (tour the church to see the original tree through a porthole in the nave). This small space is enclosed by the walls of the 10th-century Savilli Castle; but what the park lacks in size, it makes up for in exceptional views from its terrace: see the Tiber River, the dome of St Peter’s Cathedral, and Santa Maria in Cosmedin. Admission is free.
