As the birthplace of the Roman Empire and the Renaissance, it's not surprising that Italy should be so rich in masterpieces of art and architecture, or that it should have more UNESCO World Heritage cultural sites than any other country in the world. But Italy's top attractions for tourists are not all art and architecture; the country is blessed with lakes, mountains, and a dramatic coastline that give it outstanding natural attractions, as well. This list of top places to visit is only the beginning of outstanding things to see and do in Italy.


Many people start with the major cities of Rome, Venice, Florence, Milan, and Naples. Others, seeking something a little different, head for Sicily, the Amalfi Coast, or the Cinque Terra to hike between the hillside villages that line the coast. Italy’s landscape offers a diverse mix of mountains, islands, beaches, and rolling countryside, which also provide a plenitude of recreational opportunities.
