May 1, 2009: Tivoli (The nice one)

Betcha didn't know Tivoli was a town in Italy well before it was a software company! Here we are visiting Villa d'Este in Tivoli and enjoying the waterfall gardens 20 minutes before the torrential rains came in that kept us in the movie room and cruddy cafeteria for another hour. Keep in mind that these waterfalls were designed a few hundred years ago. Incredible that they brought this level of technology here!

On our way down to the lower gardens


Sitting on top of Tivoli!


Wall of 100 fountains

Taking a much needed lunch break

This is ours...
