Amazing Historical Places To Visit In Italy

Here is the list of some of the most amazing historical places that you don’t want to miss.

The term historic can be understated for a city which could trace its origins, as a continuous settlement. Nearly the whole thing about Rome is probably considered historic.

Leaning Tower of Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa, also called the Tower of Pisa or ‘Torre pendente di Pisa’ in Italian, is one of the world’s most well-known buildings because of its leaning stance that leaves it for all time appearing to be toppling over.

Paestum

Paestum is a site which includes the lovely remains of three historical Greek temples which still stand tall today. Visitors to Paestum can still see the amazing temples- the Temple of Neptune, the Temple of Hera and the Temple of Ceres. The site also includes wonderful protective walls, a Roman forum, the basic stays of a Roman amphitheatre and some historic tombs.

Civita di Bagnoregio

Civita di Bagnoregio in Italy is a lovely example of a mediaeval city left especially untouched by modernity. Known as the town of death – Civita di Bagnoregio sits atop a rocky outcrop that stands between  valleys.

Today the city’s specific history, area and architecture has seen it emerge as a tourist attraction and efforts have been made to attempt to maintain this anciental vicinity. Visitors can see some exciting sites as well as the brilliant architecture on display. The fascinating ‘Eutruscan Corridor’ is an Eutruscan tunnel that absolutely crosses the town.

Vatican Museums

The Vatican Museums (Musei Vaticani) house some of the most amazing and vital historic artefacts and works of artwork in the world. Originally the site of the Vatican Museums became used for papal palaces, however they may now be a series of galleries in Vatican City.

The Colosseum

One of the most wonderful monuments surviving from the Roman Empire, the Colosseum is the biggest of all the Roman amphitheatres. Its elliptical shape covers a surface of 617 feet (188 m) by 512 feet (156 m) on its primary axes. It was constructed for the Flavian emperors on a site previously occupied by a personal lake adjacent to the expensive palace-villa of Nero. It became committed in 80 CE. Entirely clad in travertine blocks, it stuffed a nodal position on the intersection of the Imperial Forum and the Sacred Way.
