View cave room

 Introduction from CNN’s report:

“A room with a view is a perk usually coveted by travelers. So much so that one of the most famous travel romance movies of all time takes that title. But travel is also about shutting the rest of the world out, and nothing does that quite like a room without even a single window to the outside world.”

“Here we look at a variety of viewless accommodations, from rock-carved former monastery chambers to cave camping Fred Flintstone-style.”

 The report describes seven viewless rooms in cave hotels. Some are deluxe. Others are rustic. Each provides a unique experience:

•  Italy: limestone rock houses and underground hotels.

•  Australia Outback: underground dwellings that provide relief from the heat.
