THE VATICAN GARDENS TOUR

The
Vatican Gardens tour allows visitors to enjoy not only one of the most breath taking gardens on the earth, but brings visitors to a reclusive location that was once only used by popes for mediation and solitude.

Throughout the
Vatican Gardens, there are wonderful things to see including flowers, plants, trees, sculptures, fountains, and picturesque walkways. The beginning of the gardens was in 1279 when Nicholas III moved his permanent residence to the Vatican. At his new home, he planted a garden, a lawn, and an orchard. For those strolling the gardens they are mesmerized by the beauty that has been hidden behind the walls of Vatican City for centuries.

The Vatican Gardens tour will take you through the various sections of the gardens including the English gardens, the French gardens, and the Italian gardens, all with many delights from plants to unique sculptures, statues, and fountains.

The English garden is one that looks unkempt but is actually left to grow in this manner due to the various plants and flowers in this section. A few of the fountains in the gardens have been here since Renaissance times, thus you may not believe the design in such a holy place. However, all of various sculptures, fountains, and other artwork have been protected by Vatican City instead of destroying the unique pieces.

The French garden is created with different levels and various flowers that can be seen in spring. The Italian gardens are beautiful sculptured and symmetrical arrangement of greenery.

With a private Vatican Gardens tour, you will be able to hear all the facts pertaining to the various plants, sculptures, and fountains instead of just walking through wondering the significance of certain items.

As you
stroll through the Vatican gardens on your tour, you will be walking in the same footsteps of Popes that have called the Vatican home since 1279. Enjoy the solitude and beauty, as you may never find another place so lovely.
