Italy is home to a whole pantheon of tremendous ancient ruins. There are few places on earth that have such a variety of well-preserved architecture from the ancient world. If experiencing the world of ancient Rome is on your bucket list, here are four locations that you need to visit.


Located near modern-day Naples, the ruins of Pompeii lie perfectly preserved after 2000 years. You can walk the streets of the ancient city and feel as though you have stepped back in time. Tours are available every day of the week, and transport is frequent from Naples.

Colosseum, Rome

This colossal structure is a must-see for any tourist in Italy. Located in the center of Rome, it provides a brilliant contrast to the modern city that has evolved around it.

Valley Of The temples, Sicily

Located just outside of the town of Agrigento in Sicily is this great archaeological site. It is home to brilliantly preserved temples that have to be seen to be believed. The graceful contours of the buildings have remained over all those years.

Hadrian’s Villa, Tivoli

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a beautifully preserved example of a luxurious Roman villa. Constructed in about 120 AD, you can still walk around the complex today.
