It is necessary to start a story about the sights of Italy from the ancient Colosseum. A large-scale dilapidated amphitheater, which was built before our era. It became a symbol of the Roman Empire and remained an important part of all tours to Italy.

Thousands of tourists from all over the world come to see it every day. The ancient Colosseum many centuries ago could accommodate more than 50 thousand people. Agree that this is the greatest architectural creation.

Today, such buildings are built with the help of special machines and equipment. But even with such preparation, it is impossible to imagine how to build a huge amphitheater. Now think about how the ancient Romans could do it. Thousands of ordinary people worked so that today we could see the real power and strength of the empire.

Externally, the amphitheater is a high ellipse almost 200 m long. Thanks to the arched principle of construction, the Colosseum can withstand a very heavy load, which makes it the most durable building.

No natural disasters, including earthquakes and strong winds. Also, the intervention of people (wars) could not harm the amphitheater. For its ancient history and strength, the Colosseum is deservedly considered one of the seven wonders of the world.

Valley of the Temples

Going on a trip to the cities of Italy, it is impossible to drive through Sicily. It is here that you will see a beautiful valley, consisting of ancient temples that were discovered as a result of excavations. Many of these structures were erected before our era.

To be more precise, the Valley of the Temples is located in the city of Agrigento. The excavation site has an amazing atmosphere. You can feel the full value of antiquity, admiring the ancient temples of the ancient gods.

It is as if all the mythical characters we read about as children rise from the images carved on the walls of the ruins. Tourists can see many ancient temples: Jupiter, Hercules, Juno, Vulcan. Of greatest interest is the temple of Jupiter, which was built in the 5th century BC.

The tragic history of the city of Pompeii has been striking and surprising many tourists for several centuries. Going to Italy in winter, when the air temperature is as comfortable as possible for long walks, be sure to look into this ancient dead city.

Once upon a time, Pompeii was completely destroyed by a volcano. Excavations of the ancient city began only after 17 centuries.

Vesuvius destroyed under its ashes several hundred people, squares, temples, houses and much more, which today would be of great architectural value. Thanks to the work of hundreds of archaeologists, you can now walk around the city, which was designed and built over 2,000 years ago. Archaeologists were able to get from under the ashes:




marble sculptures;

the remains of the temple.

Leaning Tower Of Pisa

Surely, all of you have heard about the original slightly inclined tower, which is located in the city of Pisa. This building is one of the iconic sights of Italy. Tourists from all over the world come to take pictures against the backdrop of a falling tower in various sometimes funny poses.

What causes the slope of the structure? The fact is that a slightly falling tower is not at all the idea of ​​​​the builders. This is just a ridiculous mistake of the architect, which he made in the calculations. In fact, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is nothing more than the bell tower of the nearby Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. This architectural masterpiece has an arched structure and exquisite bas-reliefs. As befits a bell tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa has a massive belfry with an old bell.

The building itself fell over several centuries. Of course, it wasn’t that noticeable. The reason for the tilt was discrepancies in the soil and errors in laying the foundation of the tower. Only in the 21st century, scientists, together with architects, were able to stop the fall of the structure.

Unfortunately, if you are going to walk along the Leaning Tower of Pisa on your own, only walks around the sights of Italy are available to you. Wandering inside the building is strictly prohibited. Several times a day, however, there are guided tours (each lasts no more than half an hour). However, please note that all your belongings will have to be left below. Otherwise, the load on the building increases.

If you are wondering what to see in Italy with children, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is still not the best option. Her visit is possible only if your child is over 8 years old.
