A trip to Rome - Park Borghese

On day five of our trip to Rome we started with a visit to a park: Park Borghese. It's named after the villa that's on the park grounds and that was build for cardinal Scipione Borghese.

There were some cool statues.

I really liked this one.

This was my owner's favorite statue.

We also saw a small temple.

It had all kinds of animals on the ceiling.

Can you see the wild boar?

I spotted a fountain with rabbits on it.

And there was a lake with a mysterious temple on an island.

In many of the trees there were cicadas and they were singing.

What a beautiful sound.

This is a statue of Nikolai Gogol.

He was a Russian playwright so that's why the statue had a mask in its hands.

All in all the park was lots of fun.
