Rome, Italy

Description

Taking our time in Rome,we couldn't miss The Galleria Borghese, justifiably one of the city's premier art galleries. The sculptures by Canova and Gian Lorenzo Bernini and painting by Carravaggio, without a doubt, justify its position as a must see in Rome. 

Then we had a wonderful walk and lunch break by the litthe "laghetto"of Villa Borghese,the beautiful park in which the gallery is located....also in the gardens we found out the circular theatre The Globe housing Shakesperian's plays performances in the summer!  Very close coming out the gardens climbing down the marble stairs,we had such a sight!Right in front of us stood in its white magnificence the Gallery of Modern Art,which couldn't be missed,it houses a permanent collection of Italian and World famous artists...we loved seeing Klimt's canvas The Three Ages of Humanity,and so much more Art to fulfill our eyes and soul.

As we went back towards the central Piazza del Popolo heading for the impressive Trevi Fountain walking up Corso Street,we stopped by Spagna Square...did some window shopping as for our pockets buying something in one of those designer shops would have broken the budget!We stopped by  Cafe Greco, Once the hangout of such literary luminaries as John Keats and Percy Shelley who lived in nearby Piazza Spagna, the Cafe Greco is an odd mix of tails and tourism, tourists are served their coffees by older gentlemen in morning suits.  Pretty posh! There's a good range of teas and a most enjoyable range of paintings adorning the walls of the cafe. While there's much literary history, there's more than a touch of Leicester Square about the areas!
