A rapid watercolour sketch of the dwindling remains of Scipio’s villa in what is now called ‘Lago Patria’ about 15 mins drive north west of Naples. Sadly the site is not very well manicured, but entry is free (!) as there is a hole in the fence! I have never seen anyone else there when I visit. There are further ruins around the shores of the manmade lake (used for rowing) but these are hard to find.
