The Weirdest Places In Italy
Atlas Obscura, a website devoted to the weirdest places on earth, has an extensive list of curious and extraordinary sites to visit in Italy. On the list are many churches housing the relics of saints, the Capuchin crypt of Santa Maria della Concezione in Rome, Santa Maria Novella Pharmacia in Florence, and the Park of the Monsters in Bomarzo (all places I have mentioned on MoltoItaly). The website offers great information on the history of each site as well as numerous images. It's a great resource for trip planning or for a few minutes' diversion. If you know about a weird and wonderful place in Italy, you can add it to the site too!
