Highlights from my garden idyll in Italy appeared on Bay Area Tendrils in 2009
and the Sacred Wood of Bomarzo
however ... to write about Ninfa is another story.
With a history spanning the first century and extending to a uniquely vibrant landscape of the present day,
the magical setting of Ninfa exacts a thoughtfully rendered chronicle.
And so, I shall be offering glimpses of the setting and its rich history.
Hotel Principe Serrone - Sermoneta, Italy
A delightfully out-of-the-way Medieval hill town: the nearest train station is in the city of Latina,
capital of the province of Lazio; some 40 miles south of Roma.
Gazing out from my window at Hotel Principe Serrone,
I could see Ninfa's ancient towers in the valley beyond.
