It is the largest circular arena in the ancient Rome period, and one of the landmark buildings of the ancient Roman Empire. The Colosseum was built on the site of another Roman Emperor Nero's "golden palace" (Latin: Domus Aurea). It was built between 72 and 82 AD and is located in the center of modern Rome. The entire Colosseum can accommodate up to 50,000 people. However, due to the careful design of the entrance, there will be no congestion and confusion.

Scavi Di Pompei

Pompei was once destroyed by Vesuvius, but people didn't pay much attention to it at that time. The ancient city of Pompeii is very famous. Today's Pompeii is just a piece of ruins. If you don't know what you're going to see, you'll only see some ruins. Therefore, we suggest you learn about the history of Pompeii first. Due to a volcanic eruption, the whole Pompeii ancient city was destroyed, but it completely retained all the life scenes of the ancient city at that time. After sleeping for many years, it was not until 1739 that the ancient city of Pompeii was gradually excavated, which made the city come back to people's sight again and gave people a chance to understand the living conditions of the Pompeii People 2,000 years ago. In the excavation, hundreds of people who died in the eruption of the volcano were found. Because the bodies were rotten, only their bodies were left. Archaeologists made these bodies into casts to show the miserable situation of Pompeii to the world at that time. The ancient city of Pompeii is very large.

St. Mark's Square is unique among European city squares. It is located in the center of the city, but it is not as noisy as other squares. This is due to the quiet waterway traffic in Venice. As a landmark of Venice, San Marco Square is particularly popular with tourists, photographers, and pigeons.

It took more than four centuries for the main body of the church to be basically completed in 1812, while the detailed works continued until the installation of the last bronze door in 1960. Years not only give it the vicissitudes of history but also create multiple styles for it. The Gothic spire with Baroque carving, from top to bottom, is extremely luxurious. The gilded statue of the Virgin Mary at the top of the church has been quietly guarding the city, and in the glass coffin in the inner basement lies cardinal San Carlo Borromeo, who died in 1584.

Museo Nazionale del Cinema

This is the National Film Museum in Turin, but it's not just a museum, or at least it's not a museum in the ordinary sense. The National Film Museum is a landmark building in Turin, with a height of 167 meters. It is a unique tower and the image behind the Italian dime shows its importance. After that, it was transformed into the National Film Museum of Italy. Walking into the museum is like seeing the history of movies. Many physical scenes online seem to shuttle through the time tunnel. Take the panoramic elevator to the top of Turin tower, you can have a 360-degree panoramic view of Turin. However, what makes the museum really different is its unusual design. The museum is located in the Mole Antonelliana, a wonder, an attractive Monument, and a symbol of Turin. François Confino, a Swiss landscape architect, placed the pavilion in the spire and skillfully combined the pavilion with the spire in an imaginative way. All kinds of labyrinth tour routes show the spectacular life interest. Unexpected scenes and sounds are constantly facing the visitors, just as you feel when watching a moving and unforgettable film.

Teatro Olimpico

The Olympic Theatre is the oldest existing indoor theatre. It was originally an ancient fortress and was later transformed by Palladio. Six months after the start of the project, Palladio died, leaving behind only plans and sketches. Another famous architect, Vincenzo Scamozzi, took over the whole project, and now the two rooms in the theatre, the arches of the entrance, and the complicated stage setting are all attributed to him. After the transformation of the Olympic theater, the exterior wall still retains the mottled traces of time, and the courtyard is filled with residual capitals, statues, and inscriptions. Through the courtyard and into the building on the right, you can visit the famous Olympic indoor Theater: its semicircular auditorium is obviously the essence of Roman theater; and the exquisite visual traps on the stage, using perspective and lighting, make the street landscape look very realistic - the oldest stage setting still in use in Europe.
