villa adriana

Fabriano Artistico CP 300gsm, 9" x 12". Daniel Smith PrimaTek paints.

we took a taxi out to tivoli to see the villa d'este and its famous gardens and fountains (memorialized by liszt in his late piano music), then over to see the enormous villa built by hadrian.

this is the large reflecting pool opening onto the philosopher's walk and living areas of the villa, and the hills around tivoli in the distance.
