Planning a trip to Italy and looking for attractive sites to visit? Last Tuesday we started an article about the most beautiful places in Italy and here is the continuation of the top Italian destination list.
The most beautiful places in Italy: Furore Fjord
The Amalfi coast is in general famous for its unique nature and the clean sea. But the Furore Fjord deserves to be mentioned separately. A string of fishermen’s houses cling to the cliffs, while the majority of Furore Village stands 300 meters above the water – including its main bridge, where the International Diving Championships are held each year. It’s also interesting that Fjords themselves are not very common in the natural geography of Italy which makes the Furore Fjord an exclusive site and brings it to the forth place among the top 7 most beautiful places in Italy.
The most beautiful places in Italy: Gran Paradiso National Park
This national park located in the Italian Alps got its name after the splendid Gran Paradiso mountain. The park is famous for its bustling wildlife and the breathtaking landscapes: striking valleys, mountain lakes, glaciers, and alpine meadows. It is also a right place to visit for bicycle lovers: the Grand Paradiso region boasts more than a dozen bike routes for all types of cyclers.
The most beautiful places in Italy: Cascate del Serio
Surrounded by the Orobic Alps, the beautiful Cascate del Serio are located only 62 miles outside of Milan and make for an easily-accessible hiking trip. The highest Italian waterfall and the (ex) second highest waterfall in Europe used to flow freely all year round. However you have to plan your trip in advance if you want to see the famous Cascate de Serio “at work”. In 1931 this powerful water source became restricted by the Barbellino Dam project and gets put in action only five times a year on specific dates determined by the National Electric Energy Corporation.
The most beautiful places in Italy: Saturnia Thermal Springs
The ancient hot springs of Terme di Saturnia (sometimes called the Cascate del Mulino) are an icon of Southern Tuscany. A chain of gentle waterfalls cascade into layers upon layers of white and blue limestone pools, all held at a pleasant 37.5 degrees Celsius and filled with rich minerals. Considered a “high-flow” spring, the waters rush up from the ground at a rate of 500 litres per second, just like a jacuzzi. The experience is especially breathtaking at night, when the rising steam becomes visible against the starry night sky.
