Wild Italy - From The Alps to Tuscany

  • Published 2 weeks ago
  • Not Rated

From the snow-covered Dolomites to the turquoise blue of the Mediterranean, the spectacular landscape of Italy is already a favorite for many.
Winter in northern Italy: ice and snow rule over the Dolomites for months on end – only specialists like the Ibex can live up here in the high mountains. Hardly any other animal can climb so efficiently and scale steep slopes so elegantly.
Tuscany is a region in central Italy. Its capital, Florence, is home to some of the world’s most recognizable Renaissance art and architecture, including Michelangelo’s "David" statue, Botticelli’s works in the Uffizi Gallery and the Duomo basilica.
Its diverse natural landscape encompasses the rugged Apennine Mountains, the island of Elba’s beaches on the Tyrrhenian Sea and Chianti’s olive groves and vineyards.
