Italy boasts a wealth of artistic and cultural treasures, holding 60% of all the art of the world and leading the way in UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with 50, the most of any country on the World Heritage list. In order to assist travelers in their destination decisions when visiting Italy, Select Italy (http://selectitaly.com), a web-based travel company, recently created an infographic highlighting Italy’s most visited attractions.
Select Italy’s “The 20 Most Visited Tourist Attractions in Italy” infographic is based on the 2013 statistical survey of the Italian Ministry of Heritage and Cultural Activities and includes annual visitors data, must see insights about each attraction, and the ranking of the most visited museums and historical locations of Italy. As might be expected, the cities of Rome, Florence, and Naples house the most visited attractions in Italy. Listed on the infographic are museums, archaeological sites, natural locations, and churches, as well.
The Top 5 Attractions are:
1. The Colosseum in Rome, with 5,625,219 annual visitors
2. Pompeii in the province of Naples, with 2,457,051 annual visitors
3. Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor in Florence, with 1,875,785 annual visitors
4. The Accademia in Florence, with 1,257,261 annual visitors
5. Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, with 918,591 annual visitors
