Beautiful scenery of "Il bel paese"
Italy’s nickname is “Il bel paese”, which translate to “The beautiful country”. Many things in Italy are beautiful and it is easy to fall in love with the country and it’s people. The countryside is no exception.
I have been travelling in Italy for more than 25 years and have definitely fallen in love with “Il bel paese”. The passion has given me many italian friends over time and I visit Italy as often as possible. Most images are from Tuscany, where “my base” is in the non-famous mountains between Siena and the sea. But Piemonte, Lombardia and Le Marche is also some of my favorite destinations.
