Italy's gardens speak to us all. In the history of gardening they are the bridge between our world and the ancient world. Their harmony, symmetry and serenity are at once inimitable and universally copied. During the past few years Italy has awoken to a realization of its gardens. In a gardening renaissance, interesting new gardens are being created all over Italy, and there has been exemplary restoration of some historic gardens. In this pioneering new book, Kirsty McLeod and Primrose Bell celebrate over a hundred of the finest Italian gardens open to the public. They take the reader with them on a journey to these gardens: they explore their history and context, and we meet the owners, hear the stories behind the gardens, and learn how they were made and how they are maintained.

Beautiful gardens can steal your breath and feed your soul. Gardens of Eden brings together more than fifty of the world's most beautiful gardens. Spanning time and continents, this book visits the glorious paradise gardens of ancient Persia, the restrained gardens of Italy and the Buddhist-inspired landscapes of China and Japan. Illustrated by more than 500 photographs, this tour takes in such gardens as Les Jardins du Paradis in Cordes-sur-Ciel, France; Nooroo in Australia's Blue Mountains; Villa Lante in Tuscany, Italy-the greatest and most perfect example of High Renaissance art and gardening-and the ancient gardens of Kyoto, Japan. It also surveys gardens in which some of the world's greatest writers found inspiration, such as Vita Sackville-West's Sissinghurst in Kent, and where politicians found solace, such as George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate.
