A World of Childhood Fantasy in Narni, Italy

For more enchanting photos and videos from Narni, Italy, explore the Narni location page and browse the #Narni hashtag.

There are stunning similarities between the real-life town of Narni and the fictional world of Narnia: blazing green hills, clear blue skies and picturesque stone structures.

In fact, the classic fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia, written by C.S. Lewis in 1950, is rumored to have been inspired by this small Italian town 50 miles north of Rome. According to biographer Walter Hooper, Lewis was fascinated by ancient history, and Narni—named “Narnia” in Roman times—was highlighted by the children’s author in his personal atlas.

Whether Lewis visited Narni has never been confirmed, but even today, its cobblestone streets and castle fortress look like they belong in a magical, medieval novel. And while there are no mythical, talking creatures roaming the land, Narni still feels like a place pulled straight out of our childhood imaginations.

Rumor: Nintendo Working on a Remaster Title for 2015

This rumor comes from a fellow who predicted Devil’s Third for Wii U. For those of you who don’t speak French, here’s what @NicoWav tweeted out earlier today.

You’re gonna love it, but it’s a Remaster. It’s perfect to fill gaps inthe line-up. Really, Big N [Nintendo] will have one game per month in 2015.

Any guesses on which title Nintendo is remastering next? The fan favorite seems to be Majora’s Mask. While I wouldn’t mind that one bit, I’d love to see an HD version of Metroid Prime or Paper Mario 2. [❤]

Buy: Wii U Consoles, Zelda Sword Necklace Set
