Essentials in Italy
Coliseum: Your first stop in Italy? The Coliseum of course! Rome’s gladiatorial arena is the most thrilling of the country’s ancient sites. It was originally inaugurated in AD 80 and could seat up to 50,000 spectators as they watched gladiators slaying animals and each other.
Cinque Terre: Located in Italy’s north, this string of small villages is connected by 15th century walking paths across high cliffs, over small beaches and with incredible views of the coast and the Appenine Mountains. There are few walks in Europe that capture so much in such a small distance.
Mount Etna: Sicily is a hot spot in the summer and Mount Etna takes up a large part of the island; so you can’t miss it! It’s Europe’s largest live volcano and one of the most active in the world so tours up the volcano really depend on its activity day by day.
