I had the pleasure of traveling to Rome both on training tours for teachers and with my students, but still I find new places to visit. The city will always have me in awe. You can see previous post about touring Rome from 2019, 2018, 2017

One of the new places I was able to discover on this trip was the Orange Garden of Rome. Located on Aventine Hill, the garden was designed in 1932 by Raffaele De Vico and named after the bitter orange trees that grow there.


With the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel still returning to form from COVID, EF pivoted to visit the Palace of Castel Gandolfo. The place was a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the wonderful city of Rome.  The Vatican acquired the castle in 1596.
