Rome is the epitome of Italy sightseeing. There you will experience the Coliseum, a famous landmark that was built by the Emperor Titus in the year AD80. It was used for games and battles with gladiators.

The Pisa Cathedral is actually a bell tower that is made up of a group of 4 beautiful white marble buildings. In 1173 construction started and went on for 200 years because of so many interruptions. Because of the time of construction taking so long, the bell tower started to lean. And this is how it got its name "the Leaning Tower of Pisa."
