In this post I would like to share just some of the most beautiful places I have visited this summer during my trip in Italy #bestofsummer2021 Part 1
SAVE THIS POST for your #buckedlist #placetovisit
1. Maratea, Basilicata: it reminds me a little bit Rio De Janeiro with the Jesus Christ Statue at the top of the mountain overlooking the city and the sea
2. Castel Del Monte, Puglia:one of the most beautiful and mysterious esoteric castle in Italy, builded around 1250 by Federico II di Svevia
3. Piscine Naturali di Marina Serra, Puglia:I suggest to not go in July or August because to crowded, better to enjoy when there is no one
4. Cava di Bauxite, Puglia:I was extremely impressed to see such a beautiful, colorful and wild place in Italy, it seems to be in Mar, the colors looks surreal
5. Isola Bella, Taormina, Sicily:one of the most tourist place in Sicily. The little island it’s called “bella” not only because it’s beautiful but was named like this by Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden, a German aristocrat who lived in Taormina between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The island of Taormina became famous thanks to the photographic masterpieces of the Baron, although he went down in history as the photographer of the scandal, in fact, he is remembered as the artist who gave Taormina an erotic and Bucolic face.
6. Scicli, Sicily:Monumental baroque city with numerous churches and historic buildings. In 2002 its historic center was awarded the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO, together with seven other municipalities in the list of Late Baroque cities of the Val di Noto.
7. Positano, Amalfi Coast:every single corner of the whole Costiera Amalfitanait’s a gem. Positano is very special with its colorful houses, ceramics and lemon tree. Positano was famouse as a touristic place since the Roman Empire.
8. Temple of Poseidon, Paestum: built around the middle of the 5th century BC, the period of greatest flowering in the center. Today it has an extraordinarily intact architecture, which makes it one of the best preserved Greek temples ever.
9. Pompeii is a vast archaeological sitein the Campania region of Southern Italy. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried under meters of ash and pumice from the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius.. Not far from the coast of the Gulf of Naples, the ruins of this archaeological site can be explored and it’s extremely fascinating.
10. Villa Lysis, Capri: a must to visit of you are planning a trip in the Island. The Villa was designed in 1905 by Édouard Chimot in Art Nouveau style, on behalf of the French poet, Baron Jacques d’Adelswärd-Fersen who made it his home near the place where, two millennia earlier, the Roman emperor Tiberius had built his Villa Jovis, and called it Villa Lysis with reference to Plato Liside’s dialogue on the theme of friendship and – according to modern critics – homosexual love.
