A Sweet Break




This is not a post about cupcakes. 

Every year, and only in the months of May and June, you can visit the Commune de Roma's rose garden. {Roseto Comunale}


On elegant Aventine hill, it is a perfect place to stop for a break and literally smell the roses.



The site has been dedicated to flowers since the third century as was noted by the emperor Tacito. In the 1600's it was a Jewish cemetery and then it became the site of the annual Premio Roma contest headed by American born Countess Mary Gailey Senni, in the early 30's.
