Villa d’Este was built by Cardinal d’Este in the 16th century is where I’d like to imagine I could live. Aside from the palace, the garden is what makes this place worth visiting with its waterfall and bajillion different fountains and ‘lil hedge pathways and terraces overlooking the town and ponds with fish and water organ fountain (which plays music using the water!).

I&#39;m currently studying Architecture and minoring in Urban and Regional Planning (which has me even more excited to study abroad in Rome with its rich architectural history). As a lover of art, food, and adventure, I look forward to delving into the dynamic Italian culture and sharing my experiences!</span></p>
