The Top 7 Places in Italy That Take Your Breath Away
Italy’s mark on the world is special— anyone who has read about Rome, eaten a pizza or bought from Italian designers would know that every ounce of the country pulls in passion, love...warmth.
There is nothing like seeing Italy in front of your very eyes, understanding her beauty is as old as time, her traditions bold, her culture rich.
So, let’s pay an ode to Italy today and take a look at the top 10 must-see stops in Italy!
1. The Colosseum
This just had to be on the list— and you predicted it. Built in 70-80 AD, this historical landmark is truly a wonder of the world. Once a place of brutal Gladiators now is a home to historical dynasty and heritage— a symbol of long-lasting strength. People far and wide would come to watch the entertainment of humans fighting humans or animals... for 50,000-80,000 spectators. Now, it’s a work of art.
2. The Leaning Tower of Pisa
You knew this would be on the list too— but how can it not be? Any second, you feel this monument just might topple over, but it has been leaning since the 12th century. By 1990, the tower was leaning 5.5 degrees!
3. The Trevi Fountain
There is no way to describe the ethereal feeling you get standing in front of the Trevi Fountain. People travel far and wide just to stand face to face with the God-like carvings. Make a wish— it might just feel more true than this incredible sight to behold!
4. The Pantheon
Not as famous but just as glorious is the Pantheon. The pillars seem to belong to Mt. Olympus (the word Pantheon literally means “temple of the Gods” in Greek) and the structure seems as durable and resilient as ever.
This wonderful, colorful little city is just brimming with life, water and fun! A day trip here is perfect, with all the joyous houses and Italian foods on every corner. Portofino is a fishing village and has become quite the experience for tourists looking to see a picturesque harbor and some yummy gelato to match!
6. Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore
Tucked away in Florence, this red-domed cathedral cannot even be translated in photo. The marble panels, gothic interior and the shades of pink, green and white make it one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world. Not to mention, Florence itself is bursting with markets, culture and fine dining that true purists shed tears for!
Once you see Tuscany, you know you’re never going to leave— or at least, you can’t image leaving. The wineries, the art, the countryside— they’re all there and yours for the taking, and the experiencing. Nothing so fine as an Italian wine!
