3 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ITALY

Explorers of Italy,

To be honest, even if I am living in Italy, every day I learn something new about this county, its history, its culture, its cuisine or its people. It seems that even one life isn’t enough to explore all the corners and the secrets of Italy. In this article let me share with you 3 things that you probably didn’t know about Italy and I hope that thanks to me you’ll learn facts about our adorable “bel paese”.

ITALY HAS THE MOST UNSECO WORLD HERITAGE SITES.

THEY ARE 58 IN TOTAL.

?️This number is more than in any other country and they include: historic centre of Florence, the Colosseum in Rome, Amalfi Coast, archeological area of Agrigento in Sicily, Eolie Islands, Verona, the Dolomites, Trulli houses of Alberobello in Puglia, etc. You may see the whole list here.

ITALY IS HOME TO EUROPE’S AT LEAST 10 ACTIVE VOLCANOES.

? Yes, yes, the earth of Italy is literally hot! But many of the volcanoes any of them are in a state of repose. Such as Vesuvius (close to Naples), for example, that erupted in March 1994 last time but it wasn’t destructive as in 79 A.D.

?The Stromboli volcano (situated on the Sicilian Eolie Islands) has been erupting regularly since 1932 and it’s possible to see its activity during the excursion with a professional guide of course.

?And Mount Etna in Sicily that is erupting continuously but it’s also possible to have tour there when it’s calm.


The other volcanoes are: Campi Flefrei, Ischia, Vulcano, Lipari, Panarea, Colli Albani, Marsili, Ferdinandea, Pantelleria.

LAKE COMO IS ONE THE DEEPEST LAKES IN EUROPE. And the most popular lake in Italy, one of the most favourite attractions of Hollywood Celebrities.
