The Orange garden

The Orange garden - is a former orange grove tucked away on Aventine Hill above Circo Massimo. The immaculately manicured lawn, dotted with fallen oranges and picnickers, sets an undeniably romantic scene. It offers a delightful view through a grove of trees to the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica. The view is quite breathtaking – not quite as spectacular as the view from “Il Pincio” at the top of the Villa Borghese Gardens, but more intimate – and you can make out astounding detail since the Tiber, the ancient palazzi of Trastevere, and even St. Peter’s Basilica seem so close.

  • Truly outstanding...The Althea Inn is not only our favorite of many places we have stayed in Rome, it's the best value.

  • Althea Inn is a special find in Rome. The surprisingly spacious flower-festooned balcony is a treat, but the rest of the facilities are excellent too...

  • Arriving back from a day's sightseeing it felt like a home away from home.

  • Our room was immaculate and peaceful, with the terrace being a perfect place for a late night glass of prosecco under the stars.
