The Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy has the most beautiful Natural environment that I've seen while traveling. They have these high rugged limestone cliffs which drops dramatically down toward the Tyrrhenian Sea.
What amazed me about the area is although the terrain is stunningly beautiful I would think that it would be next to impossible to do any kind of gardening or farming here. But the hardworking locals manage to do just that. Throughout the coast you can see these cultivation terraces carved out along the rocky mountainsides where lemons, olives and even grapes are grown.
This is a photo that I took while hiking the Sentiero degli Dei trail. You can kind of see examples of these terraces in the background to the right.
Here's a closer look at some of these terraces.
