Italy has so many amazing travel destinations. It is the number one travel destination in Europe! Obviously many more than sixty of these attractions could have been listed, but we have only been through some of the country in our two trips there. So, my list is compilation of attractions that I have seen and those that others consider to be must-sees. I will list the top 60 tourist attractions in Italy in installments of five destinations per post, counting down to the best of the best.
This installment features sites from the very north and very south of the country, with several others in between.
25. Bellagio — The most spectacular town in Italy’s Lakes Region sits at a fork in Lake Como.
24. Agrigento, Sicily — Another Ancient Greek city, Agrigento is famous for its “Valley of the Temples,” a collection of Doric temples from Greece’s Golden Age.
23. Ravenna — This city on the Adriatic coast is known worldwide for its incredible mosaics, some of which date to the 6th Century. The city was part of the Byzantine Empire for many years and is also the final resting place of Dante Alighieri.
22. Montepulciano — Here is another Tuscan hill town known primarily for its celebrated local wine, Vino Nobile. The medieval, walled city is also an adorable village, pleasant to stroll through.
21. Trevi Fountain, Rome — Probably the most beautiful fountain in the world, the Trevi was made famous in the movie, Three Coins in the Fountain. To this day, visitors inevitably throw a coin over their shoulder into the fountain to guarantee that will someday return to Rome.
