Almost everybody will agree with us: there’s no place like Italy. Yet, if you are travelling around the world and feel nostalgic about the Bel paese, do not despair. From dreamy castles to paradise beaches: here are 10 breathtaking places in the world that look like Italy. From north to south, islands included.
CASTLES OF THE LOIRE VALLEY / CASTLES OF THE AOSTA VALLEY
The Loire Valley, or the ‘Garden of France’, is known for her 300 beautiful châteaux, built starting from the 10th century along the Loire river. In Italy, the Aosta Valley – the smallest Italian region – houses over 70 medieval castles, built along the main valley crossed by Dora Baltea river. Most castles of both regions are open to the public. These castles are ideal for those who want to experience a ‘knightly atmosphere’. Visitors, indeed, can go back in time and relive a past era in which the sword was more relevant than camera!
