Italy - moving around the country
Transportation by sea, particularly ferries, is also very popular. You can use them to travel between the coastal regions of the mainland, as well as to access neighboring territories. The fare depends on the class of the ferry itself, the distance of the route, and the services provided in the complex. On modern ferries there are swimming pools, cafes and bars, as well as playgrounds, and even Duty Free shops. Several taxi companies are operational in the country. You can order a car by phone or catch one right on the street. On weekends, cars from taxi companies are very few, so when you call you have to wait at least 20 minutes. The cost of pick up is at least 3 euros. At night, on public holidays, as well as on weekends, tariffs are slightly increased. Nonetheless, as a rule, a kilometer ride will be from one to one and a half euros. If you want to quickly get from one point of Italy to another, it is possible to employ the services of airports.
Nature and parks of Italy
Unlike the Gran Paradiso, located near Liguria, the Cinque Terri National Park is famous not only for its unique nature, but also for its cultural heritage of historical significance. Cinque Terri is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It contains numerous bays, small beaches, small islands and medieval towns with unique walls. They protect the terraces with vineyards, descending to the cliff on the shore and are a dwelling for animals and birds. The coast, covered with rocks, is well adapted for nesting birds. The water abounds with a variety of fish, which creates an excellent observation point, allowing you to see birds in their natural habitat.
