The Italian village of Fabbriche di Careggine has been submerged beneath the waters next to a hydroelectric dam since 1947, but has remained in remarkably good shape beneath the man-made lake for the intervening years.
Small isn’t necessarily bad. When it comes to the small villages of Italy, small is grrrrreat!
While small towns may lack the amenities and sheer number of historical sites the big cities have, they more than make up for this with the spectacular water views you’ll find in Castelmola, the fields ablaze in colorful flowers of Neive and villages clinging to eroded pinnacles like Civita di Bagnoregio.
Italy is a gem of a country, rich in both culture and natural beauty, and its breathtaking islands represent much of its charm.
From glamorous resorts and distinguished culture to magnificent historic cities, dramatic volcanoes, and pure-white secluded beaches, there’s absolutely nothing you can’t find off the dazzling Italian shores.
