Located on the road to Naples, the 105 acre park contains medieval ruins, mature oaks, cypresses, poplars, and a large variety of exotic plants and flowers collected from different parts of the world. Nimfa River runs within the park adding beauty and serenity. The Garden of Nimfa is managed by a foundation, Fondazione Roffredo Caetani to November.
The name Nimfa traces its origin to nymphaeum, a Roman temple dedicated to water nymphs, located on an island in a small lake. It is believed that nymphs dwelled in mountains and groves, by springs and rivers, as well as in trees and in valleys.
