Villa Barberini which I stumbled across had many fine paintings, super air con and guards all playing candy crush saga or angry birds. A lot of the bare naked ladies seemed to be fiddling with their tits. Most of the statuary pen is had been knocked off. Both seem to be a recurring theme in antique art. It sadly had a garden that promised much and delivered little. Rome seems not to be a great garden city, most glimpsed seem to be private corporate or private state ...
We leave Syracuse drive to Palermo and board a flight to Roma.

In May, there's a strawberry festival. To reach Nemi by bus, go to the Anagnini Metro stop in Rome. From here, take the CoTral bus heading for Genzano. At Genzano, change buses, taking the one marked NEMI. Service is about every 30 minutes during the day. Nemi was also known to the ancients. ...
