Ruins · Fountains · Art Museums
Often overshadowed by the country's magnificent capital city, Lazio is a densely populated region in the middle of the boot-shaped Italian peninsula. Though this prosperous area is home to Rome, Lazio offers many other cities, lakes, and white-sand coastal areas as beautiful additions to your itinerary. The region's landscapes are as varied as the people who live here. In the north, Lazio is lush and hilly. The southern section features rugged areas tailor-made for adventurous hikers and cyclists. Venture deeper into Lazio's countryside to find more places to visit, like restaurants and museums, as well as remnants of the ancient civilizations that once flourished in this area.

Lancashire travel guide

Theme Parks · Specialty Museums · Nightlife
Less touristed than its neighbor and friendly rival Yorkshire, the county of Lancashire is often remembered as one of the focal points of the Industrial Revolution. Despite its industrial heritage and heavy urbanization, this region offers numerous vacation ideas, not the least of which is the sweeping countryside dotted with thriving towns and quaint villages. Though this region contains Blackpool, long considered one of the country’s prime seaside resorts, many travelers avoid holidays in the bustling urban centers and head for the region’s largely unspoiled and secluded rural areas. Lancashire’s hidden gem is the Forest of Bowland, internationally renowned for its heather moorland, blanket bog, and rare birds.

Pennsylvania Dutch Country
The core of Pennsylvania's famed "Dutch Country" lies in Lancaster County, a compact area in the southeastern portion of the state. The county features a rolling landscape of green fields and gentle hills, interspersed with small towns and Amish farms. Despite its somewhat misleading nickname, the county is not home to Dutch but German-speaking Swiss Anabaptists, who began settling in religiously tolerant Pennsylvania in the early 1700s. Although Lancaster County thrives on tourism and the Amish community is its main attraction, the Amish themselves remain an intensely private people who are not particularly fond of camera-toting visitors. To learn about their hard-working way of life respectfully, take a trip to one of their hardwood furniture showrooms, clustered around the county's main roads.
