There are also many examples of nature that will leave you breathless. These are ten of the most beautiful sights that Italy has to offer.
10. The Coliseum, Rome
These ancient ruins are a testament to the ancient Romans and the society that they built. Julius Caesar watched his soldiers fight here almost two thousand years ago. You can still feel the energy of the crowd that used to gather here for these brutal fights so long ago. The only way to experience this is to go on an underground tour of the coliseum, deep into the dark heart where the soldiers and lions were held.
