166. In 1552, Lord Vicino Orsini committed The monsters park.
In Bomarzo, few Kilometers from the city of Viterbo, "The Sacred Wood" consists of a green area scattered with huge
statues inspirated from several literary sources such as knightly poems,
Dante Alighieri, Grecian-Roman mythology and esoteric tradition.
Vicino Orsini dedicated this place to his loved wife Giulia Farnese.

in the picture below you can see "The Ogre"

167. Selinunte is one of the most important archeological site of the Magna Graecia (Megálē Hellas/Μεγάλη Ἑλλάς) with Agrigento, Segesta (pic #1) and Paestum (pic #129), and it's situated in the south coast of Sicily between the valleys of the rivers Belice and Modione in the province of Trapani and Modica. This is the Temple of Hera also called Temple "E".

169. Piazza Anfiteatro (or Piazza del Mercato) is the most famous square in Lucca (Tuscany). It's characterized by its round shape and surrounded by medieval brick buildings, creating a setting full of history. Many spectacles, shows and concerts take place in the square in summer.

Et voilà!

Quote:
Virtually unknown to English-speaking tourists, Santa Cesarea Terme, remains a secret to travelers to Italy and indeed, to most Italians. In fact, "google" this town or look it up in any guide book and you will be hard pressed to find any information.

Santa Cesarea Terme is an anomaly even by Italian standards. The unique Islamic styled architecture, the intricate stone work and its remote positioning on the rocky Ionian coast set this town apart from all others in Italy.

Santa Cesarea Terme only became an independent town in 1911, after the inhabitants in the nearby villages discovered springs in the area, whose water when put upon the skin was believed to have therapeutic effects. The aesthetic and homeopathic effects of the water, drew considerable interest from the nearby royalty in Lecce and Ostuni and a lot of money began to be spent on making Santa Cesarea Terme a tourist resort.

Ornate styled churches built in the Moorish tradition and Norman styled castles were built throughout the town and soon hotels beckoned visitors. Today, there are more hotels than stores in the town and more churches than there seem to be people. In fact, it seemed like this town, when we arrived, was one of the most beautiful ghost towns we'd ever been to.

The silence of the streets was only interrupted by the lapping of the turquoise blue sea on the white, granite stones. Carved into the cliffs, were ornate bathing houses and intricate flights of stairs that allowed swimmers easy access into the translucent waters.

Truly a marvel and a sight to behold. Santa Cesarea Terme, offers visitors unsurpassed architectural and natural beauty in one of Italy's most serene locations.

There are any number of hotels to chose from in Santa Cesarea and there are beauty treatments particular to the area, that men and women a like will enjoy. After a long bike ride or drive along Puglia's spectacular coast, this town will seem nothing short of heaven.

True statement.

172. Founded by a Roman nobleman called Arrone at the end of the ninth century, Arrone lies on a rocky hillside along the left bank of the River Nera in Umbria (Province of Terni).

The town was rather important in the Middle Ages because it was situated along the road connecting Abruzzo with the Duchy of Spoleto.

The town, with a Medieval urban planning, is very picturesque, especially in its older part, known as La Terra, surrounded by ancient walls and towers which testify to its role as a guard fortress.
