The Italian Hotel built inside Abandoned Medieval Grottos Okay come with me, we’re going to explore every inch of this hotel built inside the deserted grottos of an Italian mountain village from the Middle Ages. The cliffs of the Gravina River Valley in Matera Italy are believed to be the site of the first human settlements in the country. So let’s begin our tour of this extremely off-beat, no doubt unique and very chic hotel, La Grotta della Civita… La Grotta della Civita, consists of 18 cave rooms as well as a restaurant, which took a total of 10 years to renovate from what was essentially a series of deserted caves, last inhabited in the 1950s by residents who lived very primitively. The now UNESCO-listed town of Matera has a prehistoric birthday; it’s dwellings are carved into limestone rock that overlook the Gravina gorge, connected by winding cobblestone streets, built right over the rooftops of other caverns.

Campania Aside from one archaeological site and one small coastal part of Campania, it tends to be a region visitors avoid because of stories they’ve heard – and I think that’s too bad, considering how much Campania has to offer. Campania is located on the western coast of Italy, just north of the part where the toe of the boot starts curling out. It’s the 2nd most populated region in the country (behind Lombardy), and home to some of the most popular tourist attractions in the country – Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast.

A Trampoline Bridge For Bouncing Across Paris's River Seine The architects at Parisian firm Atelier Zündel Cristea know that bridges can be destinations in and of themselves. "Think about the lovely Pont Neuf or Pont des Arts," one team member told me. "In Paris, you don’t just cross a bridge … you admire the city from the bridge." But their proposal for the recent "A Bridge in Paris" competition would offer pedestrians an entirely new way of seeing the City of Lights--like, upside down.

Japanese breakthrough will make wind power cheaper than nuclear NOTE: Some major wind projects like the proposed TWE Carbon Valley project in Wyoming are already pricing in significantly lower than coal power -- $80 per MWh for wind versus $90 per MWh for coal -- and that is without government subsidies using today's wind turbine technology. The International Clean Energy Analysis (ICEA) gateway estimates that the U.S. possesses 2.2 million km2 of high wind potential (Class 3-7 winds) — about 850,000 square miles of land that could yield high levels of wind energy. This makes the U.S. something of a Saudi Arabia for wind energy, ranked third in the world for total wind energy potential. The United States uses about 26.6 billion MWh's, so at the above rate we could satisfy a full one-third of our total annual energy needs. Now what if a breakthrough came along that potentially tripled the energy output of those turbines?

Neuschwanstein.jpg (1600×1200) Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner. Contrary to common belief, Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and extensive borrowing, not with Bavarian public funds. The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then over 60 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with up to 6,000 per day in the summer.The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures.

Here Is Everything I Learned in New York City Wear Comfortable Shoes Yes, there are women who walk around New York in five-inch stilettos. There are also people who like to have sex hanging from a ceiling with a ball gag in their mouth. This world is strange and mysterious. But New York is a walking city, a city of derring-do, and you don’t want to be limping behind. Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for What You Want

Bruges, Belgium: under the spell of the Middle Ages Part of Margaret’s palace has survived, and in the present Dukes’ Palace hotel the tower – though not the pelican – is still there and plain to see. Just a brief walk up the Geldmunstraat in the great square, the Markt, is the building from which Margaret watched the tournament in her honour. Most of the tiny centre of Bruges has preserved the architecture and atmosphere of the past to an amazing degree. Small wonder that, throughout this winter, the city and its environs are playing host to the cast and crew of The White Queen, the BBC’s forthcoming adaptation of Philippa Gregory’s Wars of the Roses novel (among other things, the neo-Gothic town hall on the Markt offers the television crew a stand-in for Westminster Palace).

Furore Furore is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy. Furore is located in the Coast of Amalfi. Geography[edit] The municipality of Furore expands from the sea level, where there is the hamlet of the Fiordo di Furore, and a little civil parish partly belonging to Praiano named Marina di Praia, up to Agerola (550 meters above sea level).
