Vatican Gardens - Review
Covering 57 acres, the gardens are spread over most of the Vatican Hill. It’s said to have earth brought over from Golgotha, to symbolically unite the blood of Christ with the blood of the thousands of early Christian martyrs. Medieval fortifications, buildings and monuments from the 800s to today are set among flowers, orchards, lawns and forest.
There are a number of beautiful fountains and even an olive tree, donated by the Israeli government. Unlike the other attractions in the Vatican, the tour MUST be guided, and combined with a more general tour of the Vatican, and conducted by an official tour guide.

Vatican Gardens, Vatican City Reviews
Lovely garden tour which get you straight into the Vatican itself without the long queue. It is a little hilly, but not too much. The garden tour lasted a couple of hours, so allow time as many hours are needed inside as well.
Great tour. Highly recommended!
Gorgeous gardens with many unique statues, benches, trees that bring you back in time...
Quite professional design and layout. I appreciate the efforts to keep the historical and cultural themes.However some of the garden seemed straight out of the 60s and out of place. much of the garden suffered from deferred maintenance. overall it is a very nice respite from the busy city next door
You can only see the Vatican Gardens via a tour guide. It's 2 hours long but worth every step and every minute. If you get a good guide like we did every bit of the gardens is simply awesome. Do this tour in the morning otherwise the afternoon sun can be too much. It's a must if you are visiting Rome.
