History, nature and orange trees: the Orange Garden is the real masterpiece of the Aventine Hill and the Ripa Neighborhood. It was created in the 13th Century by a noble family, the Savellis, from the ruins of an old castle owned by another aristocratic family, the Crescenzis. The actual layout of the park was designed during the 1930s by Italian architect Raffaele de Vico, while orange trees were planted in honor of the old Saint Dominic order. Also known as Savello Park, this great rectangular garden surrounded by medieval walls, has an area of 7800 square meters (83,958 square feet) on the hill. Here you will admire an amazing view of Rome, from the Tiber to Saint Peter's Basilica.
