Marino, Villa Ponti / Villa Sara- Circa 1964

Italy, Gardens and Parks: Villa Torrigiani, Lucca

The villa is known as the "Villa Lante". However, it did not become known as this until the villa was passed to Ippolito Lante Montefeltro della Rovere, Duke of Bomarzo, in the 17th century, when it was already 100 years old.

In my perfect world, this would be my back yard, high on a bluff overlooking a turquoise sea. Best friends would be gathered here to wine and dine and laugh and talk and just enjoy life. We'd linger to enjoy a beautiful sunset.
