Starting mid April, wisteria starts to bloom into fragrant violet bunches that hang like grapes from vines above inviting streets and from historic structures, enticing you to come close for a sniff of their sweet perfume that permeates the air around you.

You can find wisteria along Via Margutta (a charming oasis of historic beauty near Spanish Steps), next to the Vittorio Emanuele Monument in Piazza Venezia along the steps that lead up to Capitoline Hill, around the Roman Forum, and tucked away in various neighborhoods in Rome.

Via Margutta, 51 wast the famous (and actual) address in the movie classic Roman Holiday / Vacanze Romane starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.  A visit to Via Margutta is featured in Stefano Rome Tours VACANZE ROMANE TOUR

Orange blossoms with their distinctive delightful fragrance invites you for a visit to the Orange Garden (Giardino degli Aranci) on Aventine Hill in the spring.

Panoramic views of Rome from the park terrace, shady benches beneath umbrella pines, the tranquility of the park, and fragrant blossom flowers from the orange trees makes this a perfect respite from the busy city below.

Nearby in Piazza of the Knights of Malta is the “Secret Keyhole” that surprises many visitors who did not know what to expect when urged to take a peek through a very special keyhole.  Don’t worry if you can’t find the special key hole… just look for the line of people who are already peeking through it.  

You can find out more about the Secret Keyhole here, or surprise yourself!

For a brief period from mid March through first week of April (depending on the weather), you can enjoy the blossoming of Sakura, the Japanese cherry trees that blossom along the lake in the EUR district of Rome. This cherry blossoms that line the artificial lake of EUR is a tribute to to the Japanese tradition of Hanami, a festival that celebrates the arrival of Spring.

One of Rome’s best kept spring secrets is the Rose Garden (Roseto Comunale) located at the foot of Aventine Hill across the street from Circus Maximus.
