Enough of the *****ing, the place was terrific. Acres of olive groves, recreational areas (god knows what they got up to, so far from the City) fabulous pools. Statuary etc etc. We both loved it.

Well, reader, here we are at the end of our journey together. I've very much enjoyed traveling with you, sharing the sights and events with you, but alas here we are now in Tivoli marking the end of this voyage across Italy.
