Valley of Fire is a very colorful desert destination about one hour North of Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Scenic drives, unique red, pink, and orange Aztec Sandstone rock formations, petroglyphs, hiking trails, panoramic vistas are all to be found in Nevada’s oldest state park. Depending on the time of a sunny day, these formations of eroded sandstone and sand dunes more than 150 million years old have different shades of red giving the name of the park, Valley of Fire. The Beehives, Atlatl Rock, Arch Rock, Fire Cave, Seven Sisters, Elephant Rock, Mouse’s Tank, Rainbow Vista, Silica Dome, Pink Canyon, and The Fire Wave are the most popular features of the Valley of Fire.

Here it is: The Art Capital of the World. Every time I visit Florence, I get overwhelmed by the amount of art in this city. If you are on a tied schedule, you have to plan well your visit to not miss the Duomo (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore), Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Baptistery, the Uffizi Museum, Ponte Vechio, Palazzo Vechio, Boboli Gardnes with Buontalenti Grotto, the Pitti Palace, Michelangelo’s David at Accademia Gallery, and Museum Galileo (science museum) where you can see the first microscope among so many other Renaissance discoveries.
