Wales in the summertime is similar to Italy. This slow-paced nation features beautiful beaches to explore, cascading waterfalls to discover and a diversity of wildlife to encounter. Get your camera ready to capture the variety of Welsh birdlife or get your binoculars out to view whales, basking sharks and dolphins. Be sure to take in your fair share of historic castles, and more-than-your-share of Bara Brith, a thoroughly delicious traditional Welsh bread. Nearby Snowdonia National Park features breathtaking views and is accessible by hiking (for the fit) or by train (for the enthusiastic).
