15. Venaria Palace, Piedmont

The Royal Palace of Venaria Reale is a sumptuous royal residence located a few kilometers from Turin. This majestic architectural complex was built as a hunting lodge for the Savoy royal family. 

Passing through the Galleria Grande, or Diana's Gallery, one of the most celebrated places in the former Savoy residence because of its unmistakable natural light, you will take a trip back in time and be enraptured by its Baroque beauty.

14. The Arco Magno beach, Calabria

San Nicola Arcella is one of the iconic places in Calabria, but the thrill of standing under the Arco Magno is unique. It is no accident that it is one of the most photographed sites during trips to Southern Italy.

The natural environment around the Arco Magno beach is so breathtakingly beautiful: caves, inlets, crystal clear water, and at sunset an array of colors and hues that provide feelings of well-being never experienced before.

13. Palau's Bear Rock, Sardinia

Sardinia's views are unique in the world. Along the northeastern coast of Sardinia we find Palau, a very pretty town that has been transformed from a small fishing village into one of Gallura's most sought-after tourist destinations.

Here stands the Roccia dell'Orso (Bear Rock), a granite hill shaped over time by climate factors into a bear-like shape, indeed. At the top of the promontory of the same name there is a spectacular panoramic view of the La Maddalena archipelago.

12. Andromeda Theater, Sicily

In the Sicilian town of Santo Stefano Quisquina lies an extraordinary place: the Andromeda Theater.

Thirty years ago, sculptor and farmer Lorenzo Reina built this place, where he combined his passion for art and nature.

108 stones correspond to the points of the Andromeda constellation. Seen from above, these stones are shaped like an eight-pointed star.

Paying homage to the myth and the constellation Andromeda, the theater amazes visitors. A rare example of the perfect union of nature and art, this place is a must-see!

11. Lake Braies, Trentino-Alto Adige

In all the seasons of the year, Lake Braies enchants tourists. Its bright colours, from crystal blue to emerald green, are a unique spectacle. 

Lake Braies is a beautiful natural lake in South Tyrol, about 100 kilometres from Bolzano. Situated 1496 metres above sea level, Lake Braies is the largest lake in the Dolomites

This place is a gem of the Italian landscape. When you arrive at the lake, you will also have the opportunity to admire it more closely by hiring a rowing boat to go around it. 

A unique spectacle to be captured both in summer and in winter, when its waters freeze over so much that you can walk on it.

10. Bellagio, Lombardy

Along the shores of Lake Como lies an enchanting village: Bellagio. The cobbled streets of its centre are world-famous postcards. The stairs of Salita Serbelloni are the best known and most photographed spot in Bellagio. A unique view from which you can also observe the lake.

The village is located right on the point where the two branches of Lake Como branch off, 30 kilometres from the famous town of Como. Bellagio is also home to enchanting villas, world-famous for their magnificence and their gardens. Among them are Villa Melzi and Villa Giulia.

9. Rialto Bridge in Venice, Veneto

Every glimpse in Venice is a symbol of Italian beauty. The Rialto Bridge, however, along with St Mark's Square, is the timeless icon of this city. Here there is an article dedicated to the 10 most Instagrammable places in Venice!

The Rialto Bridge, characterised by white Istrian stone, is the oldest of the four bridges crossing the Grand Canal. It is located in the San Polo district, the central heart of the city, and is the smallest of the six sestieri into which Venice is divided.

To take the perfect photo reach Riva del Ferro and right in front of Hotel Rialto you will find wooden piers, ideal places to capture the unique view of Rialto, with gondolas passing in the background.

8. Manarola, Liguria

The Cinque Terre Natural Park, a Unesco heritage site since 1997, is one of Italy's most beautiful and well-known landscapes. Of the small colourful villages, today we will speak in particular about Manarola.

The village of Manarola is characterised by colourful houses and narrow alleys. Once you have passed the small harbour, a panoramic street awaits you, from which you can enjoy a complete view of the village: a breathtaking panorama. It is no coincidence that Manarola is one of the most photographed places in the Cinque Terre.

7. Piazza del Campo in Siena, Tuscany

In beautiful Tuscany, besides the famous Florence and Pisa, we also find Siena. Its historic centre has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1995. 

The core of Siena is Piazza del Campo. A universal symbol of the city, the particular formation of Piazza del Campo is just one of the reasons why UNESCO identifies Siena as the perfect and ideal example of a medieval city. 

Unique for its original shell shape, Piazza del Campo is world-renowned for its beauty and architectural integrity, as well as for being the place where the Palio di Siena takes place twice a year.

6. Positano, Campania

The jewel of the Amalfi Coast, Positano is a perched village whose beauty is world-famous. The particularity of this village is its vertically perched conformation, characterised by the pastel colours of the houses.

Who has not dreamt at least once of taking a swim in the crystal-clear waters of the sea in Positano? Why not adding this destination to your summer holiday, then? In every narrow street of the village you can catch fantastic views, either from the seashore or from the highest streets, such as Via Cristoforo Colombo, for a complete view of the village.

5. The Trulli of Alberobello, Apulia

Another Italian Unesco heritage site and one of the most Instagrammable places in Italy is the historical town of Alberobello. This village, located in southern Apulia, is famous for its Trulli

Trulli are typical limestone dwellings and extraordinary examples of dry stone slab construction, a technique dating back to prehistoric times and still used in this region.

In this fairytale town, you will feel as if you have been catapulted into a magical, prehistoric land. Here your photos will be truly unique.

4. Bay of Good Sleep, Campania

In the heart of the Cilento National Park in Campania lies the enchanting Baia del Buon Dormire (Bay of Good Sleep). Turquoise waters and fine sand characterize what is the most beautiful beach in Cilento.

What makes this beach unique is the fact that it is completely isolated and accessible only by sea. But we have a great tip to enjoy a wonderful view of the bay from above!

Go to Tenuta Punta Galera, an exclusive location for events immersed in the surrounding nature, twenty hectares of Mediterranean scrub overlooking the crystal clear sea of Palinuro.

From its Torre Mozza, an ancient watchtower from the 1500s, you will be able to enjoy this incredible view and take beautiful photos of the bay, with a very evocative light.

3. The Sassi of Matera, Basilicata

The small town of Matera is one of the largest municipalities in Basilicata, situated in a hilly area of the region. The particularity of Matera are its Sassi.

The Sassi constitute the ancient part of the town and are very particular houses since they are built above the ground, totally or partially dug into the white limestone

The scenic effect is truly incredible, also because the Sassi of Matera are located along a deep ravine, so from a distance you do not immediately notice the houses, but you only see the town at close range.

2. Marzamemi, Sicily

In Sicily, Marzamemi will make you fall in love. This small village in the Syracuse area is a real explosion of colours and also one of "I Borghi più belli d’Italia" (The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy).

This jewel of eastern Sicily, located a few kilometres from Noto, is characterised by the colours of the sea and breathtaking views. The small harbour, the Tonnara and the narrow streets of the ancient fishermen's village will provide you with evocative landscapes.

1. Colosseum in Rome, Lazio

The majestic Colosseum needs no introduction! It is the symbol par excellence of Italian history and culture and of its capital: Rome, the eternal city.

A photo with the Colosseum in the background will be the perfect shot to represent your Italian holiday. From every angle, the wonder will be unique. If you are looking for the perfect photo, we recommend Via Nicola Salvi as a precise location, from whose walls you can capture the Colosseum in its full beauty.
