  2. Sovana: the Duomo

    note from the Wikipedia for Sovana: The cathedral, built in the 11th-12th centuries over a most ancient 8th century edifice, also in Romanesque style, has a nave and two aisles with columns carrying interesting decorations with biblical scenes. Of the 8th century the crypt and the richly decorated portal remain. Also curious is the relief a two-tailed siren, next to the latter, which has similarity with one of the carved Etruscan tombs recently discovered in the area.

    More: Great Moments In Bicycle-Powered Warfare

    War is an ugly business, in which whoever moves fastest and strikes first often triumphs. So long before there were tanks and planes, people used bicycles to rush into combat. For decades, people experimented with machine guns on bikes, military quadricycles, and bicycle infantry. Here are the greatest moments of pedal-powered battle strategy.

    Gustav Klimt spent a summer at the extraordinary lake area of the Salkammergut (Estate of the Salt Chamber) that spans from Salzburg to Upper Austria.

    He painted many scenes here, mostly of the Attersee, the largest lake of them all, and the Schloss Kammer, that sits majestically on the peninsular. 

    It really is quite something to see. Such natural beauty in a serene, tranquil setting. Vast and incredibly picturesque.

    Schönen Österreich.
