History, culture, art
When you say “ancient ruins” in Italy everyone automatically think of Rome. Roman ruins, monuments and landmarks in Italy are just a small part of what the ancient populations left us. Rome offers the Colosseum, the Forum, the Pantheon, the Ara Pacis, among the others. Traveling through Italy though, you will be amazed at how many others sites you can visit, where the ancient atmosphere is still palpable.
