Yesterday, we spent part of the day in Tivoli, which is just about 25 minutes outside of Rome.
We made stops at the site of Emperor Hadrian’s villa:
The photo above is where the dining room once stood. I think I will put an inground pool in mine, too.
Then, we headed over to Villa d’Este. During the 16th century, a wealthy cardinal spent most of his fortune creating the spectacular fountains and gardens here. I could have wandered around for hours taking photos and listening to the sounds of the water.
Today is our final day in Rome and we are off to the Colosseum and other ancient sites. See you later!
