Italy OverviewKnown for its diverse regions, rich culture, and fabulous food, boot-shaped Italy possesses perhaps the most instantly identifiable physical shape of any country in the world. You can visit Roman ruins, gawk at Renaissance art, stay in tiny hill towns, ski the Alps, explore the canals of Venice, and see more churches than you can imagine. Naturally, you can indulge in the elementary pleasures of good food, improving your wardrobe, and seeking out "la dolce vita." From its beaches to its Alpine mountains, Italy vibrates with a special soul that is reflected in its people, music, and art.
Pompei – Easily accessible from Naples, the thriving resort town that was buried under ash and mud during the devastating eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD.
Amalfi Coast – Stretching for 31 miles along a cape from Sorrento to Salerno is one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines.
Colosseum (Colosseo) – Construction of the Colosseum was started by Emperor Vespasian in 72 AD and completed by his son, Titus, eight years later. The massive structure could seat more than 80,000 and hosted bloody gladiator and wild beast shows.
The Pantheon – The Pantheon is the best-preserved building of Ancient Rome. The extraordinary dome is considered the most important achievement of ancient Roman architecture.
Canals of Venice – Home to Marco Polo, Venice is a city of canals, not roads. It serenely escapes the noise of automobile traffic.
Duomo di Firenze – The towering dome in Florence is one of the largest cathedrals in the world.
Vatican City – In 1929, Mussolini gave the Pope full sovereignty over what is now the Citta del Vaticana. It has its own postal service, currency, newspaper, train station, and army of Swiss Guards.
