There is no question that Italy is among the cream of the crop as far as the world’s leading travel destinations are concerned. This is primarily because of the rich culture and history that this beautiful country oozes. You just have to see and experience it for yourself to believe it.
I am going to briefly look at the 3 most memorable cultural sites in Italy which I strongly recommend you to pay a visit.
The Roman Empire was known for its special interest and investment in entertainment and it left a standard that has ended up being replicated in various parts of the world thanks to the Colosseum which still stands as the largest Amphitheater to have been built by the Romans. The Colosseum was used for various events the most notable being the gladiator fights. This is truly an amazing site.
Pompeii is a really amazing site to behold especially once you get the history surrounding it. It essentially is the ruins of the City of Pompeii during the Roman era that was destroyed by a volcanic eruption from the nearby Mt. Vesuvius. The most interesting bit is that it’s this volcano that actually helped preserve many of the artifacts in the city. You can still see the sculptures, mosaics and many more.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa
When in Italy, you can’t miss out on the opportunity to see the amazing site of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The history surrounding it is amazing as the site especially when you discover that the building began to lean because of a flaw in its architecture way back in the 1100s and has remained that way ever since. From atop this tower you can get a really picturesque view of the City of Pisa.
When visiting Italy, don’t miss out on a trip to these three heritage sites as they will give you really amazing memories and photos to take back home.
