Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Gardens of Lucullus (Horti Lucullani) were the setting for an ancient patrician villa on the Pincian Hill on the edge of Rome; they were laid out by Lucius Licinius Lucullus about 60 BCE. The Villa Borghese gardens still cover 17 acres (69,000 m ) of green on the site, now in the heart of Rome, above the Spanish Steps.The fabled gardens of Lucullus were among the most influential in the history of gardening. For introducing the Persian garden, Pompey mockingly nicknamed Lucullus 'the Roman Xerxes', and Tubero called him 'Xerxes in a toga'.show more
