Located in the Trevi district of Rome, this Barogue fountain is one of the most famous in the world and regularly features in films. The fountain is constructed mostly out of travertine stone, the same material used for the Colosseum in Rome. Contrary to popular believe, the main statue of the fountain is not based on Neptune, but Ocean the son of Sky and Vesta, who is the personification of an immense river flowing around the earth.

The Colosseum in Rome is considered by many to be one of the greatest architectural and engineering feats in the world. It is one of the largest amphitheaters ever built and could hold up to 80, 000 spectators who came to watch gladiatorial battles, re-enactments of famous battles and other spectacles. Earthquakes and stone-robbers partially ruined the structure, but it is still an iconic symbol of Italy.


10. Pompeii Ruins (Photo source: Show In My Eyes)

Pompeii, the Roman city buried under ash and pumice during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, is another UNESCO World Heritage Site and very popular Italian tourist attraction. Due to the lack of air and moisture the objects buried beneath Pompeii were well-preserved, providing a fascinating glimpse into Roman life.

Exploring the Grand Canal in Venice by gondola is a magical experience and also a great way to view the city. In many ways it is the main street of Venice and it is lined with the beautiful palazzo, many with ornate facades. Churches and other public buildings of various styles can also be seen along the canal.

Although Positano is amongst the most famous, any of the villages on the Amalfi Coast are worth a visit. Due to the steep mountains the town has a dramatic vertical layout and also has a couple of beaches to relax while soaking up the atmosphere.

To view some interesting medieval architecture a trip to the walled town of San Gimigano in Tuscany is worthwhile. It has a picturesque hilltop setting and within its walls there are numerous buildings that are Romanesque and Gothic in style. Wine connoisseurs will also love the white wine, made from the ancient variety of grape grown in the area.
