Their architecture is something which needs a special mention, and they are also famous for their food. There are no shortages for beautiful spots, and many tourists prefer to go to Italy to spend their vacation.

The following are some of the best things to see in Italy:


Colosseum is one of the world’s best monuments. Colosseum has more than just a brilliant architecture. It is the place where some of the bravest men had fought against some of the fiercest men and animals. It is one of the largest amphitheatres that were ever built, and it is a constant reminder of the glorious Roman Empire.  When you start to think about the brave gladiators who died fighting at the Colosseum, your heart starts to throb. You can take a guided tour and learn many things about the ancient glory which still stands majestically.


Pompeii is an ancient city which was destroyed and is now buried to about 4 to 6m of volcanic ash. It is believed that the city was founded by Oscans and the Romans captured it in 80BC. The town was beautifully designed, and it had an amphitheatre, intricate water system, gym and port. It is now a world heritage centre, and many tourists come to visit the destroyed city.

Leaning Tower of Pisa:

One tower that has gained popularity because of its flaw is the leaning tower of Pisa. The tower started to lean by the time it reached the third storey. It was predicted that the tower would definitely fall by the year 2000, but it still stands, and many tourists climb to the top of the tower to get a lovely view of the city.

St. Peter’s Basilica:

The St. Peter’s Basilica is the largest church in the world, and its architecture work is utterly brilliant. The disciple of Jesus Christ, Peter is buried here, and his tomb is right below the high altar. The artwork of the Basilica is very intricate, and it is pretty amazing to walk around such magnificent architecture.

Cinque Terre:

The colours of the fishing villages that are connected by sea waters are something which you must never miss to see during your visit. One of the ways to see the sight is to climb the coastal trails. Try to travel by water to escape the crowds and visit when the site has fewer tourists so that you can enjoy the beautiful scenery without the disturbances of the common din.

Lake Como:

Lake Como is a beautiful place which is surrounded by mountains, and it has one of the best climatic conditions in the world. You have many resorts and villas near the lake, and you can have a wonderful time with your family and friends.
