Rome: The Borghese Gardens

After shipping a box home to my personal storage unit parents house, I was determined to spend my last half day in Rome just basking in the Rome-ness of it all. I took the bus to the Borghese Villa (unfortunately I couldn’t get a reservation to the museum that worked with my schedule, next time) and stopped at a father-son butcher shop. Oh to be friends with that nice old Italian butcher!

The gardens make up the second largest public park in Rome. The villa, that houses the aforementioned museum, was once the home of Napoleon’s sister who apparently liked to use her maids as foot stools. Charming woman.

It was so nice to have some quiet (and shade!) before heading to the train. Ciao Roma!
