A Fine View of Rome

On our last day we wanted one final good look at Rome.

We didn’t have long so we headed over to Villa Borghese to get a fine view of all that we had seen on our trip so far. Villa Borghese

Villa Borghese is Romes largest park. The sun was shining so we took a stroll round the lovely landscaped gardens first.Villa Borghese

The park is situated on a hill so after a small climb you come out from the trees and have a beautiful view of St Peters Basilica.St Peter's Basilica

This restaurant caught my eye. If we’d just had more time we would have stopped here to eat lunch, but unfortunately we had a plane to catch a little later on. So for now we’d just have to drool over the menu and dream!
