To escape the heat in Rome, I took a day trip out to Tivoli to visit Villa d’Este.  Though the famous water fountains weren’t working, the gardens were beautiful to see.  I’ve been posting some of these pictures on Instagram, but I’m getting all of them up here.

As with anywhere I travel, I found some of the best places for food in Rome.  Scouring blogs and foodie sites online, I compiled a list of must tastes, mostly bakeries.  I diligently tried all the gelato places in the city.  It was a burden, but I endured.

There was a gorgeous full moon while I was in Rome, so I took the opportunity to get some night shots.
