Flowers on Stairs at Villa D'Este (Tivoli, Italy)

I had the honor of accompanying my grandmother on her trip to Italy and Israel in 2010. It was the last big trip she took before her passing from cancer a year later. She was so energetic and wanted to see it all. The Villa D'Este (in Tivoli, Italy) is a UNESCO world heritage site, and its gardens are truly amazing. This is one of the lesser shared views of the garden, but I love the perspective with these potted flowers and the couple walking on the landing below. Then there's the fact that you can see the horizon out beyond that impressive arch. It's views like this that make me glad I bring my camera along when I travel.
