Ninfa was a medieval city, now in ruins. It always had a garden there for centuries, built against the back drop of these ruins. It is beautiful and romantic, some has called it 'the most romantic garden in the world.' The Caetani family owned it for centuries and has recently set up a trust and/or foundation to care for it and keep it opened to the public for eternity. A visitor asked why there are ruins in the garden and was it put there for effect. So ignorant. I have an ebook on Kindle detailing all about the garden. It was such a pleasurable visit.
