Giardini della Landriana

A true green oasis on the Lazio coastline: the “Giardini della Landriana” cover over 10 hectares within a large estate, near Tor San Lorenzo in Ardea, 35 km south of Rome.

The peculiarity of the garden lies in its division into “rooms,” each of which stands out for a botanical variety that makes it unique and different from the others, such as the ancient rose valley with its lake, the white avenue, and the olive garden.


At the “Giardini della Landriana”, we organize open days for the public, guided tours for individuals, groups, and school groups, lunches or brunches, receptions, photographic services, and gardening exhibitions.

Whether you need to arrange a photo shoot, a public event, or a private party, our team of experts will provide all the necessary support to make it an unforgettable event.

There is also a catering service personally managed by Stefanina Aldobrandini who, in this splendid setting rich in plants and flowers from the Mediterranean area, manages to recreate an atmosphere that combines service perfection with the joy of a countryside reception.


It all began in 1956 when Marchese Gallarati Scotti and his wife, Lavinia Taverna, decided to purchase a rural property on the Lazio coast at an auction, which they named “La Landriana,” in homage to one of the names of the Taverna family.

At the time of purchase, the land was completely bare. The couple decided to plant trees to bring some shade to the farmhouse and to mitigate the winds blowing from the sea. Later, a family friend gave Lavinia Taverna a packet of seeds, and the marchioness, almost as a joke, tried to sow them. The result of the experiment was sensational: from those small grains, the plants that still make up the “Giardini della Landriana” were born.

In 1967, landscape architect Russel Page arrived at the Gardens, who divided the large garden into spaces circumscribed by a strongly geometric design emphasized by hedges and pathways.
