I was a nice walk up to the rose garden and the view is very nice. The park itself is nice however most roses were either dead or not blooming when we went there end of June.

Absolutely gorgeous! Worth the trip for sure. Taking a cab ride up provides gorgeous views as you leave the city. We loved the variety of roses and the view of both the country and city areas of Tuscany. Don't miss this FREE gem!

elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
