Interesting Places to Visit in Italy
You’ve probably heard of these seven wonders of the world and maybe even visited one or two. The first is probably a little obvious. Which country has the least expensive flights? The answer is Canada. This country does not only offer some of the best natural scenery in the world but also some of the friendliest people as well.
Canada is home to some of the most mysterious and interesting places to visit. Take a trip into the Canadian wilderness and find yourself in a land with an incredible amount of caves. Canada has a long history of caves but you will never see them like they do in the United States. There are many caves in Canada where you can go for months without ever leaving the boundaries of the park. Getting there is going to be another adventure because of all the wildlife that lives in these deep caves.
Canada has a large number of cities that are unique and beautiful. Two of my personal favourites are Vancouver and Montreal. Canada has some of the most gorgeous scenery in the world and you can take a boat tour of some of the most untouched areas of the country. On your journey you will discover the famous Canadian cities of Vancouver and Montreal along with many other small towns that are unique and beautiful.
One of my favourite cities is Florence, Italy. I spent many summer afternoons there trying to get a good picture of the Piedmont region. On one of my days there I discovered the incredible Piedmont Cave which is open to visitors year round. In the late afternoon I headed up to the Piedmont mountains where I could see pine trees that were still green from the previous season. The Piedmont region has a temperate climate so there were many days when I went out with my family and we could stay in a little village called Croatia.
Italy has beautiful country houses and villas that are situated on the coast. On one of my trips to Italy I stayed at the beautiful villa of Isola Bella at Lake Maggiore. This villa has been built over a natural lagoon and is surrounded by waters of the lake. One of my favourite lakes in Italy is Lake Como. This lake is recognised as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. The entire area surrounding Isola Bella is mountainous including the part that is connected to the Alps.
One of the cities in Italy that is recognised as a World Heritage site is Florence. Many travellers travel to Florence just to see the famous painting by Renaissance artist Michelangelo called Sistine Madonna. The main Cathedral in Florence is the Duomo. It houses all of the major religious artwork in Italy. Another very popular attraction in Italy is the boiling river called the Po River that flows right through the city of Florence.
If you are looking for an unusual place to visit in Italy then you might want to visit the town of Lucca. The main attractions in this small town include the Duomo and Santa Maria Novella. The Duomo is the primary building in town and is where the Pope resides. The Santa Maria Novella is another building which is frequented by many people travelling to the town to take in the spectacular sunset.
Two other attractions in Lucca are the Vatnajokull and the Pianzucco Caves. The Vatnajokull is an active volcano that is located on a peninsula in the sea of Maggiore. This active volcano has a number of tourist attractions such as its very hot steam house, a railway line that runs through the middle of it, and it’s beautiful caves. The Pianzucco caves are a series of caves that are located next to the active volcano and serve as an escape route for those who wish to escape the daytime heat.
