Canopus over canal at Hadrian's Villa
During our recent trip to Rome, we paid a visit to the incredible UNESCO World Heritage site of Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli. Minus the wooden fence in the photograph, you can almost envision how this gorgeous area of the property would have originally looked. Among all the images I captured, this was my favorite. It really encapsulates the grandeur that was once was. As you walk through the immense estate, you imagination runs wild. Emperor Hadrian envisioned an opulent escape in the most serene of landscapes in the Italian countryside.

Great Day Trip. It was an easy train ride away. It was a great break from the hustle and bustle of the busy Italian capital.
