Italy has long been lauded as a place of cultural significance, Rome having spread its influence over much of the western world. Equally impressive is the legacy it is creating through its national parks. This trip provides ample servings of both. Orchids fill the air with perfumed breath in the wildness of Majella National Park. Mountains run to the sea, where crystal clear waters flow in and out of grottos carved from the soft chalk like rock in Gargano National Park. The cultural angle veers abruptly from the commonplace in Alberobello where conical roofed houses create a fairytale cityscape, and in Matera where living in a cave was commonplace until the middle of the 20th century. This trip satisfies with what one expects from Italy and astounds with the unexpected.
