Beautiful Cathedrals and Places in Bella Italia!

Buon giorno a tutti!! Hi, I'm Ember a new member of the Incantato Team and I have traveled extensively throughout Italy and am very excited to share some interesting facts and places to see with you.

I found a link on youtube so you can see some footage of the Abbey of Pavia. There is some lovely music in the background as well. The church of the Abbey of Pavia was begun in Italian Gothic style in 1396 under the Duke of Milan, Gian Galeazzo Visconti. The rest of the Abbey is dominated by the Rennaissance style. A large portion of it was destroyed in WWII but was restored shortly thereafter.

As part of your city tour, you will be visiting La Scala and the museum, click here for information.

Italy has so many wonderful places to see. Each town has a lot of history and culture to offer. It's best when you have an idea of what you want to visit. Here is the official link for San Gimignano, so you can have idea of where you want to go during your free time.

I've never been to Montecatini Terme which is known as a spa town. Here is a link to check that out. It looks REALLY cool!

There is so much information out there about all the places you will be visiting. There is more to come on this blog soon! A presto!!
