9781331096214: A Little Journey to Italy (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Little Journey to Italy

Europeans tell us that Europe is the most beautiful country in the world and that the most beautiful part of it is Italy. And this is true, for there is no country of so small an extent that contains such lovely scenery, thrilling history, and vast treasures of art. Great numbers of people who visit Italy are so charmed that they talk about it more than they do of any other foreign country. This being so, we also want to see for ourselves its great attractions.

In the first place we consult our maps and learn that the shape of Italy resembles a seven-leagued boot. It is long and flaring at the top, with a slender foot and high heel. In length, Italy is seven hundred miles. In the extreme north it is three-hundred and fifty miles in width. Along the leg of the boot it averages one hundred miles in width - of course, being narrower in the toe and heel.

From Lombardy, the Apennines extend down the length of Italy, branching off in broken lines, so that one range goes down into the toe and the other down into the heel. They resemble somewhat the seam along the side of a boot. If we stand upon the crest of the mountains in the heel, we observe that we are on a peninsula. Again when on the mountains near the hollow of the foot, we see that we are on another peninsula.
