Sometimes just too Scandosotan for my own good

I'm reading a history of the papacy, and I keep having two problems:

1. I keep thinking "Viterbo" is a misprint for "Ytterbo."
2. I keep forgetting that they named Tivoli Gardens after somewhere else, so whenever they mention the pope fleeing to Tivoli or proceeding to Tivoli or whatever, I picture him on the giant swings. Wheee!
