The Colosseum and Forum exhibit the grandeur of the empire and Renaissance palaces maintain the captivating works of well-known artists from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods. Vatican City embodies the peak of the artistic masters who are represented in both in the design of the basilica and through the works that are displayed throughout the galleries that span multiple millennia of history.
Several nights spent in Naples will uncover a different side of Italy, as the chaotic city revels in its position by the sea and holds thousands of years of historical artifacts amassed through trade, conquering, and collections.
