Today our program took a day trip to Hadrians villa, then we had a delicious Italian lunch that made all of us so stuffed! Following that we went to the Villa d'este, which was a giant mansion with beautiful gardens with waterfalls everywhere! From my understanding, visiting Villa DEste is like the Billtmore Estate in Ashville, NC. The funny thing is, this lavish residence was home to a Cardinal... So much for a vow of poverty!
Flying to Venice this afternoon state tuned for lots of beautiful pics of the grand canal!!
