In 1873, Jules Verne wrote "Around the World in 80 Days". This work has fascinated generations of readers and has inspired all those dreamers in the world who seek adventure and exotic evocations of travel. This masterpiece of fantasy literature, and the spirit of astonished discovery that permeates its pages, inspired the idea of "Around the World in 80 Wonders": a journey through the treasures that the five continents offer to the passionate traveller, or to whomever is capable of opening their eyes in amazement when faced with beauty. The aim is to present readers with the most beautiful images of the world, like as many windows open onto the Earth. These images will be accompanied by the narrative voice of well-known journalists and writers, and subdivided into the legs of an ideal journey around the world to discover art, history and nature. The works of humankind and natural beauty will alternate in this extraordinary journey: from the train and aeroplane window, or from the ship's porthole, we'll see Mount Fitz Roy and Mont Blanc, the Vatnajokull glacier and the geysers of Yellowstone, Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon, the waterfalls of lguazu and the islands of Polynesia, the Great Barrier Reef and the Skeleton Coast; as well as the skyscrapers of Manhattan and the giants of Easter Island, the Mexican pyramids and those at Giza, the Terracotta Army and the great cities of ancient times, the Great Wall of China and the Hermitage, Venice and the Coliseum, Versailles and the Alhambra. This book, then, is a collection of extraordinary photographic accounts, which allow us to admire the various perspectives, snapshots and overall views of eighty wonders chosen from our planet. Interesting explanatory texts will introduce every chapter, each of which will.
