Springtime in Rome
Ok, I'll take a break from depressing posts about Italian politics. And for good reason, too: the weather is fantastic! Spring is arriving (knock on wood, or better, tocco ferro) and it's about time to take advantage of this great weather and check out Rome's many parks.
Although Villa Borghese is probably the most central and popular, if you go a little more north you will find Villa Ada (pictured above), which is much bigger. Take a short metro A ride out to Colli Albani and there is the Appia Antica park, which is beautiful and huge.
Hmmm, I feel a Students in Rome article coming...
