The second is the hilly section of the region, and the third is the area in which Giulia flattens out into a vast, grassy  plain. The fourth and final section is the coastal region. The country  is known for having beautiful mountainside territory, with mountain  lakes, fields of flowers, a diversity of flora and fauna and access to  the ocean.
