Garda to Rome

After 12 days in Desenzano del Garda, we head for Rome.  Garda has been a slower paced visit than our time in Sicily. Driving is less challenging. The temperatures are cooler. I love Sicily, but the more controlled pace of life in the lake region is definitely more relaxing.

One of the nicest things about the lakes is the boat transport that is readily available.  From Desenzano you can get a lower lake travel pass for about 23E.

The Villa Romana is an amazing place. Small enough to visit in an hour and filled with information.  They heated tha baths with underground fires that went through the walls and under the pools.  We worth the visit. Cost 4E. The mosaics are exceptionally beautiful.

For a quite experience in Italy try to find a library. Free entry, and sit down. You may be pleasantly surprised.
