Italian Renaissance Garden
Whether it be from the inspiration of the ancient Greek and Roman, Medieval or Islamic - Italian Renaissance gardens are soaked in myth, tradition and history. You can see your first hint of it in the impressive bronze wolf at the entranceway to the Italian Renaissance Garden at Hamilton Gardens. It is a testament to the ancient fable of Romulus and Remus. Above the entrance path spans equally characteristic, arched trellis work. Deliberately beautiful it is a suitable introduction to the elegance of the bubbling water features and square planted beds below.
