Garden Ripa Grande
Ripa grande - The “Delicious garden” of Donna Olimpia
The garden and the complex of historic buildings that enclose it date back to 1640, and were designed by Donna Olimpia Maidalchini, a powerful exponent of the Pamphilj family, who played a leading role in 17th century Rome. In ancient times, the complex had direct access to the Tiber river, in an area of capital importance, as it represented the port of Rome, where goods arriving from the most distant seas already arrived in the imperial era. The garden housed some of the rarest plant species, and architects such as Borromini and later Busiri Vici took part in the construction of the complex, which also incorporates a very ancient church from the 10th century.
The site is close to the Tiber Island, Circus Maximus, Roman Forum, Colosseum.

This was truly a lovely experience. Make this a part of your “to see and to do” list while you are in Rome.
A one of kind opportunity to live The Eternal City with all of our senses at once. Thank you!
The concerts were intimate experiences of talented musicians and singers, splendid music and the vibrant spaces of the churches where the concerts took place.
A superb way to spend an hour in this wonderful city
Intellectually fulfilling and fun. It may not seem very touristic, but it would take your visit to Rome to another level.
The concert would have been enough with just the knowledgeable tour of the church. Add beautiful baroque music to that and I was in heaven.
We felt almost transported back in time. An experience not to be missed.
Shouldn't be missed by anyone who likes music, especially early music!.
What a great way to have an experience in a Baroque Palazzo.
It was a unique experience! Interesting and moving.
We were charmed by the genuine enthusiasm of the performers and recommend to other Travellers
We warmly recommend anybody, visiting Rom, who loves painting art as well as music to participate to this sound and vision tour.
beautiful church, and music!
Great venue - beautiful singing - they really gave it all they had. Highly recommended. Great start to any evening in Rome.
Well worth the investment of time and money.
A definite highlight of our trip
