One of the world's most romantic gardens, the Gardens of Ninfa were laid out in the ruins of a medieval village traversed by the sparkling Ninfa River, 45 miles southeast of Rome. It has been the property of the Roman Caetani family since the 13th century and is the creation of three exceptional gardeners: the eccentric English-born Duchess of Sermoneta, her brilliant American daughter-in-law Marguerite, the present princess Caetani, and the princess's daughter Dona Lelia who has collected over 10,000 plants from all over the world. This manual explores the Gardens through photographs and text, and includes garden maps, plant lists and practical information on visiting times and best seasons.
