paradise botanicals | THE POPE’S PRIVATE GARDEN

We had the amazing opportunity to visit the Vatican Gardens. This is a private garden that the person we were staying with gave us access to. It sits behind St. Peters Bascillia on on the Vatican State, guarded by Swiss guards. It felt like serious VIP treatment.


The Vatican is it’s own state within Rome. It was surreal visiting this lush paradise full of exotic plants from around the world. The garden is maintained for weekly visits from the pope to walk and ponder the worries of the world and the uncomprehendible connection to GOD.


The landscape was scattered with various statues and icons from around the world. It was unusual to find this paradise in the middle of a very concrete and dry looking Rome.


There was even a launch pad for his Helicopter.  The place was serene and quiet.  Exotic Birds nested in the branches and twirped to each other.  We loved out time there.  I hope you enjoy these pictures. Check back next week as we head into St. Peter’s Bascillia.”

About Asiel Design

We believe design begins with a relationship of trust with your wedding planner and event designer. When choosing an event designer or a wedding coordinator, we believe that you should feel listened to, understood, and guided through the process in a way, which helps you achieve a look and feel that is personalized to your style. There should be a connection with the designer’s work, esthetic, and a comfort-ability with the professionalism of the company they represent. Mutual respect between the client and the wedding coordinator or event designer is the foundation to a successfully designed event. We believe it is the client who holds all the secrets to their design – what they like, what excites them, and the message and experience they desire to convey throughout their event.
