Palazzo Venezia Garden Rome – A secret oasis

Relaxing

I come to the "Palazzo Venezia Garden" whenever I want to forget that I even am in Rome. It's perfect even for taking naps in the midst of it all...

Rome is a chaotic city - it has always been. The Romans of today are bothered as much by that as the ancients. When I'm in the city centre and I want to escape all the noise, the honking, and the masses of tourists consuming the city's streets with the pounding of their feet, I always go to this little oasis in the garden of Palazzo Venezia.

In this area, I can enjoy a breath of peace, totally forget about the city, read, relax or just have a break alone with myself. The garden is inside an old palace with a fascinating history. It's also the seat of a museum that with its fancy rooms has really something special to offer visitors.

I usually work in the city centre and to have this bit of heaven in a bustling city like Rome is has turned out to be a lifesaver - most of all, whenever I need to lose myself under some trees or have a little power nap. There are trees, benches, and a fountain that create an idyllic atmosphere all around.

This is the perfect spot for a brief escape between visits. For me, it represents a fresh breeze in the busy pace of my life.
