Travelers: Italian Sites
Want to spend less and see more the next time you are in Italy? You're in luck.
In Rome, centuries-old paintings, frescoes, sculptures, glass works, and more are available for you to see at no cost. From St. Peter's Basilica to a variety of churches to the Pantheon, you can wander for days and still not see it all.
The Trevi Fountain is free to visit as well. Spend time watching people throw their three coins into the fountain.
Check out the Duomo in Milan or Florence to view more ancient art up close and personal. Remember to look up...ceilings are magnificent and so are the windows.
In Florence, visit the Basilica of Santa Croce for art from over 20 different artists and sculptors. Take time to look at the funerary monuments as well...from Dante to Galileo.
More fountains, art, and statues can be seen at piazzas throughout cities in Italy. Check out St. Marks in Venice and the Piazza della Signoria in Florence.
These are just the tip of the iceberg to viewing amazing works of art...all for free.
