For some reason trees grow bigger here at Ninfa and flowers bloom extra big too. Its true that the varieties of blooms were selected for their huge size but even so they do extra well in the Garden of Ninfa. I've been checking airfares. Norwegian air are selling tickets for 2018 and they leave from major cities in the USA. In May next year if you book now fares from Los Angeles to Rome are as low as US$189 one way. What are you waiting for? I'd go except I need to go elsewhere to explore and collect more stories. I have a Youtube channel too under my name. I use my real name in all my social media channel.
