Yesterday I ended up exploring a nearby villa with a fellow blogging friend and her group of friends. It was just what I needed. I got out of the house, I got to explore a new place, I got to take plenty of pictures AND I got to eat delish Thai/Japanese food. Saturdays don't get much better than that.
The villa we visited was Villa Valmarana, just down the road from La Rotunda. Here's the website if you wish to read more about it.
Now a few pictures from the day.
I love the scrollwork
Some of the garden in the front of the villa
Early spring flowers coming out
A back view of Mt. Berico
Loved the plants around the villa
Supposedly the villa gets it's name from these dwarf statues that are around it. I believe there were 17 in all.
