February 16, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Italy has lived through a rollercoaster of fascinating eras, right from its ancient origins to the Renaissance and now the center of fashion and architecture. That’s why, we have come up with a list of places that you can check out on your Italian adventure!

Pompeii and Herculaneum take that concept. After a devastating volcanic eruption in the year 9 A.D., the ancient city of Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried under almost 20 feet of volcanic ash. Also, you must visit the local museum where in artifacts collected preserved for public display.

When one thinks of Rome, the first visual that comes to the mind is the Colosseum. Built in 80 A.D, it soon gained popularity for staging gladiatorial fights and other gory sports for public amusement.

The next best thing to check out in Rome is the Pantheon, an epic structure standing an impressive 142 feet in height and built in around 126AD. From being a temple dedicated to the pagan gods of Rome, it saw itself evolve into a Roman Catholic Church in the 7th Century.

While Venice is predominantly known for its romantic gondola rides. One way to check out its beautiful historical monuments and locales is to hop on to a vaporetto,a prominent attraction among these is the Palazzo Ducale whose history can traced back to the ninth century.
