AMENDOLA

Amendola is a city that is divided into three levels. In the first level there are farms

There are also solar power plants

(https://i.imgur.com/6AL8ihU.jpg)

a beautiful wide road that goes towards the mountains surrounded by large farms

(https://i.imgur.com/lykoSOs.jpg)

The road suddenly becomes a small highway

(https://i.imgur.com/x1atlGS.jpg)

But there are also mountain roads that offer a beautiful panorama or you can take the railway

(https://i.imgur.com/gV8KqkQ.jpg)

But if you take the highway there is a tunnel that connects the most modern part of Amendola. There is also a train depot and train station

(https://i.imgur.com/iSm2HUT.jpg)

Avenues and with beautiful villas

but if we take the road the mountain road...

(https://i.imgur.com/AMICbta.jpg)

...we see the ancient part of the city of Amendola

(https://i.imgur.com/rX38YYZ.jpg)

A small mountain tourist town

(https://i.imgur.com/5bJc3I7.jpg)

There are two roads that are parallel to Lake Casamassima. From this side you get to the terminal part of the lake with its complex system of dams

(https://i.imgur.com/ixDJz1I.jpg)

While from here you go upwards. Towards the Siculian Alps with mountain towns and tourist centers

(https://i.imgur.com/L6KdTCL.jpg)

But returning to the ancient city of Amendola here is the central square with the church and the town hall

(https://i.imgur.com/4Wttu6z.jpg)

But if we move to the part of Lake Casamassima there is the procession on boats of the patron saint of Amendola. San Lorenzo Maiorano

But the night comes and the city changes coloring

The central square of the ancient city of Amendola at night

The night creates a special combination of colors

(https://i.imgur.com/y8pvOMp.jpg)

Houses are lit up while streets light up streets and buildings

(https://i.imgur.com/zPu9r7l.jpg)

Even the train station has its own charm at night

(https://i.imgur.com/AhB5nEw.jpg)

The industrial zone is the area that is particular at night with neon lights

Off to a good start! I haven't seen a Mediterranean styled city in a long time. The third night view is particularly nice.

it's also been a long time since I saw a city building work of this style and so it's very nice, thank you for this sharing  :)

Thanks for the comments.

SAMBUCA

Sambuca is a city with many farms

(https://i.imgur.com/6lqItzB.jpg)

Obviously this city is located near San Foca and therefore has a more advanced transport network

(https://i.imgur.com/ym0Se4P.jpg)

The town is located near the sea and therefore has small beaches

(https://i.imgur.com/LCzojz4.jpg)

There is also a small dam that regulates the flow of water coming out

(https://i.imgur.com/Czr72Pu.jpg)

In fact, farms have irrigation systems

(https://i.imgur.com/lFxtmKx.jpg)

The city has a beautiful old town with an ancient cathedral

(https://i.imgur.com/YSUw3qA.jpg)

obviously the transport network is advanced as there are highways that transport a high volume of cars

(https://i.imgur.com/Dayy1Q2.jpg)

A highway interchange

(https://i.imgur.com/LvadwpP.jpg)

there are also roads that go to the mountain

(https://i.imgur.com/2cCd5uR.jpg)

A mountain road with a beautiful mountain forest

(https://i.imgur.com/njTgJX6.jpg)

But in the evening the city is transformed

(https://i.imgur.com/nG24Y54.jpg)

a city with lots of light

(https://i.imgur.com/XVQyM9E.jpg)

the night parks and with the buildings around take on a different color during the day

(https://i.imgur.com/N4yayoM.jpg)

people sleep and only the few lights of passing cars remain

(https://i.imgur.com/vnkaK8x.jpg)

At the end there is a small industrial area with lights

ACERENZA

Acerenza is an agricultural town

(https://i.imgur.com/v8Yw7lb.jpg)

This city is crossed by a beautiful river

(https://i.imgur.com/7OTOfFF.jpg)

Of course there is a small lake where two rivers join. These rivers run through farms

(https://i.imgur.com/ujF3Zp8.jpg)

The city has a very old style. The train station also has the traditional style

(https://i.imgur.com/SxcikBS.jpg)

The heart of the city has a beautiful church with a large square

(https://i.imgur.com/1qZ2Eq9.jpg)

The city also has somewhat modern commercial buildings

(https://i.imgur.com/YvYmSbe.jpg)

This city passes a highway and there are some exits

(https://i.imgur.com/G4eq2Pp.jpg)

The night comes and the city takes on another aspect

(https://i.imgur.com/WXYJmr7.jpg)

The church has another look at night

(https://i.imgur.com/G6MLwXr.jpg)

The night is deep and the buildings have different colors with artificial lights
