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.

  • The gardens are so beautiful and well taken care of. The Vatican museums are always crazy busy and when you get to the gardens it feels so good. Do try to spare time to see the amazing gardens at the end and enjoy the views.

  • This was our "vatican highlight". Outstanding, especially with booked bus tour and on a sunny day. It's super beautiful and really well looked after. The bus should be booked in advance, but it's really great! You can get discounts online, we ended up paying £9 per head for a 35 min tour on the bus with audio description whilst driving. Really worth it, especially on a sunny day.

  • Great place to see, The Popes gardens, their favourite spots. A lot of walking involved so wear comfortable footwear. You have to take the guided tour, not allowed wander on your own here. We had a great tour guide, a mine of information

  • Suhteellisen iso puutarha, jossa isoja rakenteita. Puutarha on aika savolaisittain hoidettu. Aidanteet oli leikattu varmaan kolme-viisi kuukautta sitten, hiekkakäytävillä kasvoi rikkakasveja ja kitkemisessä oli aika paljon toivomisen varaa. Kasvillisuudessa ei ole mitään erikoista. Englannissa kiertoliittymien ruusualueet ovat hienompia kuin paavin ruusutarha. Puutarhadda on kaksi ihan hienoa suihkulähdettä. Puutarhaan pääsee vain bussikierroksella tai kaksi kertaa päivässä opastetulla, kävellen tehtävällä opaskierroksella, joka maksaa Vatikaanin sivuilta varattuna 33 euroa. Kesto noin kaksi tuntia. Opas keskittyy rakennuksiin ja patsaisiin, puutarhasta sisänsä ei juurikaan kerrota. Samalla lipulla pääsee kierroksen jälkeen Vatikaanin museoihin ja kappeliin, mutta kaikkialla on tosi paljon ihmisiä. Vatikaanin sijaan kannattaa ehdottomasti mennä Tivoliin katsomaan Villa d'Esten puutarha ja keisari Hadrianin villa (Villa Adrian), joka todellisuudessa on kiehtova, noin 30 rakennuksen rauniokaupunki.

  • It is a amazing place. Everything looks like perfect. You just enjoy this beauty 🔔.
