To see green in Rome, one needs to be a Nosey Parker. On a recent visit to Rome, I was surprised to find few public gardens. The streets are so narrow; that putting potted plants in front of shops or residences quickly turns them into an endangered species. Rome is a city of layers, and if you want to experience it’s gardens, you need to poke your head in doorways, alleyways and push open gates.
