Villa Adriana, is really a pplace to go, unique even if it is not so easy to reach. where else you could find places from all over the roman empire which were selected by emperor Adriano? A little bit of Greece, something fron Egipt... ans so on..if it is not so hot it is a really relaxing place..Have fun ..
