Is well known for the Piazza del Duomo or Campo dei Miracoli, (the Field of Miracles) which holds the main attractions of Pisa, one of Europe’s greatest groups of buildings.. The piazza was built outside the main city center but within the still-preserved city walls built in 1155. The leaning Tower of Pisa is one of Europe’s most famous towers. Construction on the tower started in 1173 but was not finished until the late fourteenth century. The cylindrical tower, 56 meters tall, has eight stories, six of them with open galleries. Inside the spiral staircase has 294 steps leading to the top of the tower.
Is a city unlike any other. Even if you have seen it in picture or videos, the real thing is more dreamlike than you could imagine. With its canals instead of where the streets should be. It has fabulous palaces and churches, which show us centuries of history in what was a wealthy trading center between Europe and the Orient. Take a ride in a gondola along the famous canal, plenty of restaurants and filled with beauty and art.
With spectacular views of the blue sea, the green of the Mediterranean hills and the smell and landscapes of citrus fruits spreading out over terraced cultivations which blend with the typical architecture in order to create one of the most beautiful places I Italy. Its street go over deep gorges which runs down towards the beach and climbs up again along a sequence of breathtaking views: an extremely unique scenery designed by bays, inlets, cliffs and small villages engrafted onto the mountain.
Mount Vesuvius, a volcano near the Bay of Naples in Italy, is hundreds of thousands of years old and has erupted more than 50 times. Its most famous eruption took place in the year 79 A.D., when the volcano buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash. The dust “poured across the land” like a flood. Two thousand people died, and the city was abandoned for almost as many years. When a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748, they were surprised to find that–underneath a thick layer of dust and debris–Pompeii was mostly intact. The buildings, artifacts and skeletons left behind in the buried city have taught us a great deal about everyday life in the ancient world.
A town in the city of Naples. It lies at the western foot of Mount Vesuvius, on the Bay of Naples. The medieval town of Resina – read Resìna – was built on the volcanic material left by the eruption of Vesuvius (AD 79) that destroyed the ancient city of Herculaneum, from which the present name is derived. Ercolano is a resort and the starting point for excursions to the excavations of Herculaneum. The town also manufactures leather goods, buttons, glass, and the wine.
