Must-see places when you travel to Italy

by : Charles Brown

Italy is a breathtakingly beautiful country that will always be one of the highlights for anyones travelling to Europe. It has everything from the impossibly blue Mediterranean Sea to the spectacular Alps, with fabulous food at every stop along the way. And while you are there, you can’t help but trip over history with every step you take.

Must see places when you travel to Italy

  • Venice
    If there is a city with more charm and magic than Venice, someone is keeping it a very tight secret. The 'streets' are waterways and the city is gradually sinking into the Adriatic Sea. But don’t worry, it will still be there by the time you get there to see it all.
  • The Roman Colosseum
    Talk about the original home for extreme games. You can almost hear the ghosts of gladiators clashing their swords and signing multi-drachma contracts with their agents. The Colosseum is both a spectacular and grim place, considering the many senseless acts of violence that occurred here. Kind of like the beauty pageants are today.

  • Florence
    If you aren’t already an art lover, you will be after visiting Florence. Walk in the footsteps of Michelangelo, Da Vinci and Raphael and your life will be forever changed. One word of warning however, if you are already prone to feelings of penis envy or inadequacy, Michelangelo’s 18-foot statue of David, may not be your cup of tea.
  • The Vatican
    The art, architecture, history and sheer aura of this place will leave you speechless.
