The Caves Of Camerano, Italy – Ancient marvels are many in UNESCO World Heritage-rich Italy, and while the bulk of visitors stick to cities like Venice, Naples and Rome, the Italian countryside is littered with treasures worth seeking out. Try Camerano in the Marche region, for example, where you’ll find a subterranean maze of sandstone corridors and chambers, thought to be the remains of ancient quarries or cellars used for wine storage. However, a number of architectural embellishments and seemingly religious decorative details found on the walls – bas-reliefs, friezes, patterns and symbols – link these labyrinths to the first prehistoric settlements in the area, dating back to the 3rd millennium BC.
