The Roseto Botanico Fineschi is the world's largest private rose garden, which collects more than 6,500 different rose varieties and species (second only to the Rose of Sangerhausen, a publicly owned site in East Germany, which includes about 8300 different roses). The Cavriglia Fineschi Rose Garden, in the province of Arezzo, is just 50 kilometers from Florence. There is also a special section in the garden, where roses are grown exclusively for educational purposes in what may be called the “living museum of the rose.” A visit to this unique museum is an unforgettable experience.

The garden was created in 1967 by Professor Gianfranco Fineschi, a professor of Orthopaedics. Every year the collection adds new roses.The professor has organized the garden by dividing the roses based on their classification, with an engraved plaque with the name of the rose, the year of introduction and the name of the creator. His work continues today through his daughters and sister.A visit to Roseto Fineschi gives guests the opportunity to see the great range of roses, the infinite range of colors, the variety and diversity of scents and the other physical features such as leaves, thorns, stems and berries.

The Rose variety has always been considered the “Queen of Flowers” because few other plants give so much satisfaction to the grower for the small amount of work required to maintain it. The Rose Garden is open weekdays and holidays from the first Sunday of May to the last Sunday of June, from 9 am to 7 pm.
