The territory boasts numerous natural parks and protected marine areas: it holds the title of "Green Region of Europe", thanks to the presence of its three national parks and is among the Italian regions with the highest number of locations, as many as 23, present in the prestigious club "The most beautiful villages in Italy". However, it is rich in villages, castles, basilicas and cities of art with high artistic value, which lead to an increase in the tourist flow.
