Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Italy is at the top of the list when it comes to world-class Italy sightseeing. Sometimes it seems like the whole country is a UNESCO World Heritage Site! In almost every town you’ll find an extraordinary duomo, or church; the leaning bell tower in Pisa, the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City and Florence’s Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore are among the most famous.

Unrivaled in the arts for centuries, masterpieces like Michelangelo’s David and da Vinci’s Last Supper are still on display for all to see.

There are also spectacular ruins – remnants of ancient Rome are scattered throughout today’s metropolis, and the entire city of Pompeii has been unearthed from the ashes. Picturesque scenery? Italy boasts some of Europe’s best historic hilltowns, most fabulous beaches and the lovely, rolling countryside of Tuscany is second to none for spectacular Italy sightseeing!
