Villa Balbiano, Lake Como, Italy - A privately owned property protected by high walls, Villa del Balbiano allows its elegant garden to be glimpsed from the large gate, overlooking via Regina road that from the town of Ossuccio leads to Lenno on Lake Como.
Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland -- my favourite city by far! We stayed at the Temple Bar Hotel, with a little grocery store across the street. It's lively on Temple Bar. There's all sorts of pubs filled with live music and people talking.
