24 Largo Cristina di Svezia, Rome, , Italy

When planning a visit to the winding streets of the Trastevere neighborhood, earmark time to meander these ancient gardens. Locally known as Orto Botanico, this land was first cultivated by Pope Nicholas III in the late 13th century, and is now owned by the Sapienza University of Rome. With more than 7,000 species of flowers from around the world, there’s color and beauty at every turn, especially when the roses are in bloom in April (the gardens are closed in August and during winter). This 29-acre garden along the Janiculum hill, which is open Tuesday-Saturday and charges an entrance fee, is a great place to relax in the quiet Japanese garden.
