Italy - moving around the country
In view of the fact that Italy is one of the most developed countries in the world, the transport interchange on its territory is also characterized by high level of activity. The most common type of public transport is buses. Please pay attention to the fact that they go both on intra-city, and on interurban trips. Thanks to the extensive automobile interchange, it is possible to go by bus even to the most remote regions of the country. At most bus stops, you will find an information screen with timetable and fare. The vehicle always runs on schedule. You can buy a ticket in the buses themselves when boarding, or in tobacco, or newspaper kiosks. As a rule, all regular trips run from 6 am to 12 noon. With regards traveling to very remote places, regular trips run only once a week, thus tickets will need to be booked in advance.
Nature and parks of Italy
Italian Alps can be conditionally divided into 3 zones. At the very bottom is a broad-leaved forest belt, consisting mainly of cork oaks, European olives, chestnuts, ash trees and cypresses. Beech forests grow after them, turning into coniferous. There is a large number of larch and fir. In the middle zone after the border of the forest, shrub plants predominate. For example, alder, juniper or rhododendrons, wild flowers, sedge and meadows covered with grass. At the highest point snow-capped, no trees, shrubs or flowers are found, and a large amount of moss and lichen cover the ground.
