This trip was wonderful. It was the most beautiful garden I have ever seen. The small group was great. Nicole was a fantastic guide, really knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. It was one of the most interesting and fabulous tours I have ever been on. Highly recommended.
There were only 8 of us in this tour, making this trip more personal for us. Our guide gave us a lot of information not only about the places visited during this tour and the role they played in history, but also about many aspects of life in Rome.
The Castle Caetani in Sermoneta was impressive and we got a lot of details on its history from the local guide, information translated in perfect English by our guide.
After a relaxed lunch in one of the trattorias in Sermoneta we visited the Ninfa garden set up among the ruins of the old Ninfa settlement. The garden is beautiful and we were introduced to the many different plants growing there.
All in all a very pleasant and instructive experience, enhanced by our knowledgeable and attentive guide.
Jeanette was very approachable and translated clearly what the local castle guide at Sermoneta said. We all had a brilliant time and the gardens were amazing. A complete jewel!!
A wonderful full day of adventures with fantastic a guide and driver. We were lavished with very kind, personal attention.
The first stop was the Garden of Ninfa. It was beautiful - flowers, meadows, ponds, medieval ruins, a clear pristine river. Very picturesque!
After the garden we went on to town of Sermoneta with its huge medieval castle. We visited parts of the ancient stone town, followed by a truly scrumptious multi-course lunch with all the trimmings - absolutely delicious! After lunch we walked up to the huge castle and took a guided tour.
The castle is fully intact with lots of interesting areas to explore.
In all, this was an excellent tour! We enjoyed it thoroughly and highly recommend it!
Thank you so very much to our guide and driver for a wonderful experience!!!
A personal-feeling tour with helpful and knowledgeable guides, a very good lunch at an agritourismo, and a fabulous visit to the Garden of Ninfa, which is not easy to get to. I highly recommend this tour, and it's wonderful guides.
