Located equidistant from Florence, Siena and Arezzo, the Roseto Botanica di Cavriglia is one of the largest private rose gardens in the world. It is a living museum of the genus Rosa where roses have been planted separately in subdivisions of Section, Species, Sub-species, and hybrids (of very complex lineage) rigorously obeying the traditional botanical structure. After more than 30 years of work by Professor Gianfranco Fineschi, the Roseto now contains approximately 7000 unique cultivars, some of which were already thought to be extinct. Each plant is marked with a tag containing basic identifying information (its botanical name, year of introduction in Europe, and hybridizer, if applicable).

To reach the garden take exit at San Giovani Valdarno; follow signs to Cavriglia. All visits to the Roseto should be scheduled during the months of May and June The peak of bloom is usually from approximately 20 May to 10 June.
