Have you planned a tour to Italy? Congratulations, it means you are in for one of the best trips of your life. Yes, that’s right, because Italy is full of interesting sights, unsurpassed architecture and a charming atmosphere… Below we will name a few sights in different cities of Italy that have become known to the whole world and that everyone should see.
You probably didn’t even have a question why this attraction was in the lead in the list of “ what to see in Rome and Italy”, right? After all, the Colosseum is the most famous building, which is the main symbol of Italy. It was built in the 1st century and at that time the amphitheater was the largest architectural structure in the Roman Empire, accommodating more than 50,000 spectators.
Unfortunately, he survived as well as he would like… But, of course, there is something to see here! And not only look, but also feel the atmosphere, touch the distant past…
Yes, definitely worth a visit. In addition, the entrance will cost you not so much, only 4.5 euros. In addition, you can go to the Colosseum with a guide. It will be much more interesting this way, because this is a place full of events, stories and legends!
Rialto Bridge (Venice)
The symbol of the most romantic city in Italy – Venice. This:
- the bridge, which has been standing unchanged for more than 4.5 centuries;
- the bridge on which for many years the most active trade in Italy was conducted;
- the bridge mentioned by Shakespeare himself in the play The Merchant of Venice.
The bridge is attractive not only for its architecture and view, but also for its certain aura and mood. After standing on it for a few minutes, looking at the opening views, you will feel as if you were at least a few centuries ago.
Arena di Verona (Verona)
Almost the oldest building in the country, included in the list of “the most beautiful sights of Italy.” You will not believe (when you see the Arena with your own eyes) that it is already almost 2 thousand years old! She survived a lot, including strong earthquakes, but remained in almost perfect condition (as for a two-thousand-year-old structure). Therefore, if you are planning your tour to Italy in the summer, be sure to try to get to one of the performances.
And the most amazing thing is that in the summer in the Arena di Verona and beyond, as hundreds of years ago, theatrical performances and opera are held. The best option, of course, is to visit the theatrical production of Romeo and Juliet. Many critics acknowledge that this is where this production is the best in the world. As for prices, the tour will cost you only a few euros, and a ticket for a theater performance up to 20 to 200 euros.
Leaning Tower of Pisa (Pisa)
It is also extremely difficult to visit Italy and not visit this marvelous “falling” tower on the Square of Miracles. Built more than 8 centuries ago, it still stands, although it is constantly moving. The movement depends on subsidence of the soil, the “work” of groundwater and, in fact, people. Thus, the slope of the Leaning Tower of Pisa is 3.5 – 5.5 degrees.
But the Italians love their attraction too much to let it fall. Therefore, in the 20th century, a commission was even created that regularly appoints a “treatment” for the tower in the form of restoration work and work to strengthen the foundation.
By the way, near the “falling bell tower” you can not only take pictures. It is definitely worth visiting inside the Leaning Tower of Pisa, climbing the luxurious spiral staircases right up to the top floor, the bell tower.
Naturally, these are far from all the attractions in Italy, because there are hundreds of them in this country, not to mention cozy courtyards and interesting houses… Simply put, absolutely every person should visit Italy once in his life.
And if you decide that the moment has come to visit the “Roman Empire” – book a tour to Italy for convenient dates! And soon you will be able to enjoy this truly amazing country, immerse yourself in Italian luxury and history, culture and amazing flavor.
