Aquileia 02-Oct-18

I really enjoyed my visit to this WHS, way more than I was expecting.  Having seen both Roman ruins and Mosaics elsewhere, I wasn't expecting to be impressed.

However, the huge Roman Mosaic covering almost the entire floor of the Basilica is one of the most breathtaking that I have ever seen.  Both its scale and content are impressive, I particularly enjoyed the fishing scenes.

Skocjan Caves 01-Oct-18

These caves are very impressive, and the visit is see them is definitely worthwhile.  However I did struggle a little bit with understanding why these caves, compared to the many other impressive caves systems around the world, are under the protection of UNESCO.

Botanical Garden, Padua 27-Sep-18

I visited the botanical gardens in late September 2018 on a warm and sunny day.  Having seen a lot of old towns and churches recently, these gardens came as a lovely surprise.  Not being particularly interested in gardens or gardening, I was not greatly enthused by the thought of this visit, however I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hours I spent here.  The garden is in two parts, the old, historical garden and a new garden contained within a large metal and glass building.  The two could not be more different, but both were equally enjoyable, focusing on different aspects of our interactions with plants over time.

Longobards in Italy 26-Sep-18

I visited the site at Cividale del Friuli today and must say I was a little disappointed.  Maybe if I had visited additional sites included in this listing, I would have gained a deeper understanding into the inclusion of this town by UNESCO.  The included area in the town is small, comprising only the cathedral and the area immediately surrounding it.  The cathedral is nice, but nothing particularly special compared to others in northern Italy.  The main highlight is the Longobard Temple in the Monastery set behind the cathedral.  This is lovely but very small, and has a real sense of feeling special.  The problem being that for me at least, I failed to grasp the reason for it being so special.  The site didn't seem to have any detail on how this place fit into the wider listing.
