Best places to see in Italy

Piazza di Spagna
Landmarks
Piazza di Spagna has an eloquent and romantic language all its own. The square is the perfect place to people-watch; take note of the fashionable people coming from the direction of Via del Corso. Explore the Church of Trinità dei Monti or the Keats-Shelley House, which was dedicated to the English romantic poets who were obsessed with Rome.

Verona Arena
Theaters
Verona Arena ties the threads of performances past and present. At the height of the Roman Empire, audiences flocked to this amphitheatre to gorge on gladiatorial gore. These days, it’s more Carmen than Commodus, with the summer opera season drawing fans from far and wide. Whether you’re into theatre or not, don’t miss out – the atmosphere in the arena is spine-tingling.

Rialto Bridge
Monuments
“Will you marry me?” This legendary bridge has seen its fair share of marriage proposals over the years. It makes sense – once the daytime crowds have dissipated, there aren’t many more romantic spots. The stone steps, slanted colonnade and central portico are dreamily lit up after dark, providing the perfect stage for hearts to flutter and soar. Love is in the air!

Piazza delle Erbe
Popular Areas
This square has everything you’d want in a picturesque piazza. Weathered bell towers stand at each end, stately sentinels of Veronese life through the centuries. Along one side, faded frescoes tell classical tales of decadent deities. Underneath, café parasols line the edges, with market stalls and a gurgling fountain in the middle. Now that’s a proper piazza!
Accommodations near Piazza delle Erbe
Verona Cathedral
Landmarks
Some people put a welcome doormat outside their door. Others hang a wreath. Maestro Niccolò, a 12th-century stonemason, went a whole lot further. Two snarling griffins flank the entrance to this cathedral. Above them stand ten prophets, four gospel emblems, three bible scenes, two holy warriors and a partridge in a pear tree. OK, we made the last one up. Still, beats a wreath.

Car Museum
Museums
Beep-beep! Or “ahwooga”, if you happen to be hitting the klaxon horn of a 1913 Storero Model A! It’s on display in Turin’s 1,000sq-m Car Museum, which covers three centuries of man’s favourite mode of transportation. Begin your journey in 1769 with Cugnot’s steam-powered car, then "varoom" back to the present to see modern fossil-fuel guzzlers from Abarth’s to Lamborghini’s.
