Il parco

There is a park that is a five minute walk from my apartment and a few days ago I had some time in between classes so I decided to check it out. It is HUGE, and so pretty. I had about a half hour to kill so I was only able to see about a quarter of the park...but what I did see was gorgeous. Sometime soon I'm going to head back and check out the rest. It was so quiet and peaceful -- hard to believe it's in the middle of Rome!

Fountain right when you walk in

Really cute little building near the entrance

Pond in the center

One of the many pretty plants

Long walkway

These trees are all over Rome

Stairs that lead to the second level

Flowers on the second level

This picture just screams "Italy" to me :) Reminds me of a vineyard

Single flower growing through the grass

View of AUR (my school) from the second level of the park

Self portrait right before I left

It's all so beautiful. I'm glad your going to school that surrounds you with beauty. I think that someday I'd like to go to Rome and see it all for myself. But for now I'll enjoy seeing it through your camera lens. Love, Aunt LindaXXX
