On the grounds of the Villa Medici in Rome with gods, gardens, and great art (photos)

I don’t know what to say about this…I was visiting the website of the French Academy in Rome and then accidentally closed the window. When I re-opened it a new beautiful picture was staring at me.

I kept refreshing the page and found 8 more beautiful pictures.

The building is called the Villa Medici located in the second largest park in Rome called the Villa Borghese. It has a fascinating history going all the way back to the Sun King in the 1600s, then Napoleon and his Imperial designs, modern French art, and finally the art academy it is today.
