@RexRed,
It would help if you say where that was. It reminds me of Prague.

@vonny,
Hadrian's Villa outside of Tivoli (Italy)

http://sights.seindal.dk/img/orig/8883.jpg

We almost got there. After our enjoyable walk in the rain at Villa d'Este (no other visitors there, just the work crew playing with the cats on the patio outside what in memory was a small cafe), our bus stopped on the road at the entrance road to Hadrian's Villa on the way back to Rome but.. the driver said there was about a mile walk to the main area and we only had one umbrella (someone, not me, forgot his umbrella). I'm sorry we didn't do the walk somehow, but how, 0h well.

@ossobuco,
If you look round the back, you can still see the remains of Hadrian's personal toilet, Osso.

I'm serious, for once.

And then, and then, this is, I think, my favorite building: the Pantheon in Rome, commissioned by Marcus Agrippa, rebuilt by/for Hadrian.
wiki - Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome.[3]

That's a summer photo - I highly recommend Spring or Fall..
Liking it as I do, I've gone out of my way on many walks to just go in and out of it, checking in, and one of the times it was raining down through the dome oculus to the drain beneath.
