Another discovering of this beautiful island!
Our special guide, Prof. Joseph Buhagiar, Director of the University Botanic Garden in Floriana will illustrate this hidden and almost unknown gem.
Romeo Romano Gardens were the back garden of Casa Leoni ( Protected content ), which is similar to that at San Anton Palace but on a smaller scale. It is the second largest Hospitaller-era garden in Malta after San Anton.
A water lifting apparatus (Maltese: sienja) was installed in the gardens in the 19th century for irrigation purposes.
Since Protected content , most of the garden has been open to the public as Romeo Romano Gardens (Maltese: Ġnien Romeo Romano).
A small museum, driven by the local council is hosted in Casa Leoni and usually closed, we are trying to get the permission to a special opening for Internations.
Otherwise we will have a visit of the historical part of Santa Venera.
