The Great Escape

Most years, the fates have conspired to have us experience Villa Adriana and Villa D’Este in deluges of Biblical proportions.  We had some luck last year and a little the year before, but nothing quite like this past weekend.  It was amazing that during our first trip, we didn’t wind up being washed into the Tiber and out into the ocean.  It was a beautiful day to visit these two places.  We piled into our bus at 8:30am and after a coronetti infused start, we hit Hadrian’s Villa, Tivoli and Villa D’Este.  It was a great escape from Rome for a day. NormanNorman, drawing at Hadrian’s Villa.
