Italy
Italy, heart of the ancient Roman Empire, has long enchanted visitors with its rich culture, incredible cuisine, and stunning natural landscapes. Walk the footsteps of Emperors at the Forum in Rome. The Eternal City brims with romantic bridges where couples join hands to watch the sunset, where museums house priceless treasures, and where cafes overflow with patrons sipping espresso and enjoying a luxuriant meal. In the north, Milan is one of the world’s great fashion metropolises and a gateway into the Italian Alps. Venice needs no introduction, while Florence displays Renaissance-era charm. The vineyards in Tuscany produce some of the world’s best wine. And far to the south, Sicily seems cut from a different cloth as if refusing to submit to modernity. Up and down the peninsula there are spectacular sights, sounds, and experiences just waiting to be discovered. Come see what it’s all about.

The Colosseum may be the most famous landmark in all of Rome. It was built in 80 AD and was once the site of many gladiator battles to the death, and prisoners fended off hungry lions. The Colosseum consists of four floors in total (including the basement), however only part of the ground floor and second floor are currently open to the public. The first floor offers a view of the maze-like buildings in the center of the Colosseum that were once part of the basement of the structure. They were once the homes of the beasts and gladiators that would be made to fight for the entertainment of the crowds. From the second floor, one can see the interior structure of the Colosseum which is divided into three parts: the arena, the auditorium and the podium. It is also a perfect location for taking unforgettable photos.

Church
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site

In 1982, the cathedral was listed as a World Heritage Site and part of the historical center of Florence. The outside of the church is matched with bright red, dark green, and white marble to form spectacular geometric designs that display the classical, elegant and free interpretation characteristic of the Renaissance era. It is both dramatic and beautiful from any angle.

The Artwork nearly spans the entire history of art, from ancient Greek sculptures to 18th-century Venetian paintings. There are also many original master works, including Michelangelo's "Holy Family", Raphael's "23-year-old self-portrait", and Da Vinci's "Adoration of the Magi".

Historical Architecture
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is not only a landmark building in Italy, but also one of the wonders in the history of world architecture. The tower is actually a free-standing bell tower of the Cathedral of Pisa, located in the central square of Pisa: the Miracle Square. The building has a cylindrical shape and is made of white marble. The bottom of the tower is engraved with reliefs and on the top there is a bell pavilion. It is said that the Leaning Tower of Pisa is built with spoils transported by six ships by the Pisa fleet. The tower is tilted to the southeast, and many people believe this is due to an uneven foundation and soft soils.

There are several bridges that connect to the Tiber's west bank, one relatively famous one is the Ponte Sant'Angelo that goes to Castel Sant'Angelo. Ponte Sant'Angelo had two statuettes personally sculpted by Bernini, which have been moved inside the church for preservation.

On April 15, 2019, the world was stunned to learn fire had ravaged Notre-Dame Cathedral in the heart of Paris. In a matter of hours, centuries of history that had survived revolution, two world wars, and natural disasters was swept from existence. It is with heavy heart we mourn the loss of these cultural treasures.
