TOUR DE LA VILLA - ROME pt. 10 - VILLA D'ESTE
Oh my goodness, Villa d'Este! This was probably the most beautiful in mine and probably everyone else's opinion. The villa grounds sit on the mountainside in the small town of Tivoli just a stones throw away from the city center of Rome. The villa itself was gorgeous with 3 stories of many rooms with beautiful frescos but the gardens below it were even more breath-taking: fountains, trees, reflecting pools, gardens. I am definitely going to have to pay another visit to the quaint town of Tivoli for Villa d'Este sake and also for the excellent food and wonderful views.
Well there you have it: Villas of Rome! Whew, I feel like I've just run a blogging marathon with all of these posts! This weekend was one to remember and may be competing for 'number one favorite' thus far with all of the beautiful places I got to visit. Thank you again for taking a look and have a wonderful week. Ciao!
