April 2004 - Rome Italy
The city's second-largest park started life as a "pleasure garden" for Cardinal Scipione Borghese in the 17th century. Take in the view from the Pincio, a quiet and shady overlook that's been enchanting visitors since Lucullus hosted his fabulous banquets here back in the days of the Caesars. The heart-shaped park encompasses 19 acres of landscaped plains and formal gardens, adorned with the busts of famous Italians lining paths at the park's southern end.
