Overview

One of the most famous places in the city, the Gardens of Lucullus were the pioneers of the Persian gardening style in Rome. These gardens were housed in an ancient castle dating back to 60 BCE. They spelled luxury with their expansive shade, beautiful flowers and fruits. The site changed many hands, one of which was Valerius who was compelled to commit suicide by the Empress Messalina who loved playing among its shade. She was later murdered here too. However, such is the charm of this beautiful landscape that one cannot but fall in love with it.
