Verona is the home to some of the most beautiful Opera shows in the world. If you want to see an Opera, seeing it in Verona is the place to see it. You can see the Opera at Arena di Verona. There are several shows to choose from and you won't be disappointed with any of them.
5. Watch an Italian soccer game
Soccer is one of the biggest and most popular sports in Europe. If you have seen a professional soccer game before, seeing a soccer game Italy is a whole new experience. The fans are so incredibly enthused to watch the game and trust me, you'll get just as much into it.
6. Indulge in gelato
Gelato is an Italian style ice cream and although you can get this delicious dessert in the United States it is nothing quite like having gelato in Italy. Some of the best places to find Gelato in Italy are Ciampini, Carapina, and the Festival del Gelato.
7. Throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain
The Trevi Fountain is located in Rome and is one of the largest tourist spots in Rome. Millions of people have tossed a coin in the Trevi Fountain and made a wish. If you visit Italy, you'll definitely want to make a wish of your own.
8. Walk The Colosseum
The Colosseum is a huge oval amphitheater that years ago was used for gladiatorial contests and other public contests and shows for public viewing. Today it is a fascinating part of history and is an amazing sight to see.
9. Leaning Tower of Pisa
I'm sure you have heard of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, it is a truly famous monument in Italy. Seeing the tower in person is so much cooler than seeing it in photos and you will definitely want to get that famous photo of you “pushing” the tower that you quite often see.
