Map of the main tourist attractions in Italy

So that you can get an overview of the most important sights in Italy at the beginning, I have put all the highlights on this practical map. Get inspiration before it really starts.

1. Colosseum

It is that Landmark of Rome, if not all of Italy: that Coliseum. The imposing and world-famous architectural masterpiece impresses with a circumference of 527 meters and a height of 48 meters. Today the Colosseum is a gem, back then it was a bloody scene of bestial gladiator fights to the delight of the then imperial family.

Info and tips:
  • Place / Location: in the heart of Rome
  • Entrance fee: € 12 adults, € 7.50 young people (18-25 years, EU citizens), free of charge for everyone under 18 years of age (applies to the Roman Forum and Colosseum, valid for 2 days)

It had space for 50,000 spectators and entry was free. However, only for the free citizens of the city and the Roman Empire. You shouldn't miss the largest amphitheater in the world when traveling through Italy. After all, belongs to the Colosseum, in ancient times Amphitheater flavium called, to the seven new wonders of the world! But note the different opening times. The Colosseum opens at 8:30 a.m. all year round, but closes at different times. So be sure to check out the opening times on the day you visit. The Colosseum in Rome I dedicate myself again in detail in a separate article with a lot more information.

Guru tip: As the Colosseum is the most popular attraction in Rome, the queues are long. Get the combination ticket at the Roman Forum, there the queue is much shorter. With the ticket purchased at the forum you can go past the queues in front of the Colosseum. You can also visit the Colosseum for free on the first Sunday of the month.

2. Roman Forum

If you visit the Colosseum in Rome, you can also take another sight in Italy with you. The Roman Forum in Rome is like the Agora in Athens: the former economic, political, religious and cultural center of the city. This is where the Romans romped about, acted, passed judgments and settled their life here. Hard to imagine if you look at the Roman Forum today with all the ruins.

Info and tips:
  • Place / Location: about 700 meters from the Colosseum, about 8 minutes on foot
  • Entrance fee: 12 € adults, 7.50 € young people (18-25 years, EU citizens), free of charge for everyone under 18 years of age

On the historic market square, which was built between the Palatine and Capitol hills, there are numerous ruins of various buildings. Temples, basilicas, public buildings and many other buildings take you on a journey through time into Roman history. Go to the main cobbled street that Via Sacrathat leads you past the excavations and the remains of the destroyed buildings. The Temple of Romulus, the Arch of Titus, the Arch of Septimius Severus, the Temple of Castor and Pollux are among the buildings that are still in good to very good condition.

Guru tip: Get the combined ticket, which is also valid for the Colosseum, at the counter in the Roman Forum. There the waiting time is much shorter than at the Colosseum.

3. Leaning Tower of Pisa

Hardly any other building represents a city as much as this Leaning Tower of Pisa. The inclination of the tower began as early as after the third floor was built in the 12th century. The underground was to blame for the imbalance. It wasn't strong enough to support the heavy tower or the first floors.

Info and tips:
  • Place / Location: on the cathedral square in Pisa
  • Entrance fee: 18 €, no reduction for children
  • Opening hours: daily 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
  • Important information: If you visit the Leaning Tower from the inside, you are not allowed to take any bags with you. You can stow them in a locker.

After the slope started, it became too risky for the builders and the construction was put on hold for a full 100 years. In the 14th century, after a further interruption in construction, it was completed. In order to compensate for the slope to the southeast, the following floors were also built with a slope. Today the bell tower of the Cathedral of Pisa shows an inclination of four degrees. Very impressive when you look at the building with your own eyes. There are a total of seven bells in the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which are rung on different occasions. The tower on the Piazza dei Miracoli, which, by the way, translates as the Square of Miracles, measures 56 meters at its highest point. There are eight floors and around 300 steps. Together with the cathedral, the cemetery and the baptistery, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

6. Milan Cathedral

Milan is the fashion capital of Italy and also the capital of Lombardy. But Milan also has a lot to offer in terms of art and culture. The Milan Cathedral forms the heart of the city and should definitely be on the list of top tourist attractions in Italy.

After St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, Milan Cathedral is the second largest in Italy. Definitely go to the cathedral terraces. The view of Milan from up here is breathtaking.

Guru tip: The waiting times can be very long due to the strict security controls. If you haven't got yourself skip the line tickets in advance, you wait twice: you stand for the ticket and for the security checks. I recommend that you check the queue at the cathedral early in the morning, preferably before the cathedral and cathedral terraces open. Alternatively, you can visit in the afternoon.

No other flight of stairs is as well known as this Spanish stairs in Rome. It is one of the most important sights in Rome. The staircase consists of 136 steps and was created in 1723.

But be careful: The city of Rome wants to protect its monuments and it is forbidden to sit on them. This Sitting ban has recently also applied to the Spanish Steps. If you disregard this regulation, you face a fine of up to € 400. So it's better to take a photo from a distance and take your little sightseeing break somewhere else. There is also a shopping paradise near the Spanish Steps, more precisely below it on Via Condotti. For the expensive and noble boutiques and shops, however, you need the necessary change. Alternatively, you can go shopping in the shop window and look at the beautiful things.

Incidentally, Italians call the stairs Scalinata di Trinita dei Monti. The Germans derived the name Spanish Steps from the Piazza di Spagna, the square is directly under the stairs.

8. Trevi Fountain

With a height of 26 meters and a width of 50 meters is the Trevi fountain the largest fountain in Rome. Not only that - it is known all over the world, making it one of the top 20 tourist attractions in Italy.

In the middle of the fountain sits the sea god Neptune, who is pulled by two horses. Other figures of various kinds adorn the Fontana di Trevi, as the fountain is called in Italian, and together form a great photo motif. What you have to do according to tradition: Throw coins into the Trevi Fountain. But be careful, you can only return to Rome if you throw the coins backwards over your right shoulder into the fountain. A second toss of a coin will make you fall in love with a Roman. With a third coin, you can be sure that you will marry the person.

Guru tip: The best time to see the Trevi Fountain is in the evening, when the sun goes down. Then the water and figures shine in a wonderful light.

The secret corridors of the building that you can walk through used to connect the palace to the prison. On the west side of St. Mark's Square there is another important sight: the St. Mark's Basilica, the main church in the city. Numerous mosaics, some of which are still original, decorate the interior of the cathedral. The Markus Tower, the bell tower of the cathedral, you cannot miss.

Alternatively, you can also take a paid shuttle bus that will bring you closer to the crater.

You can plan around two hours from the ascent to the descent.
