Abundance of History
Italy has a long and glorious history, which has left a magnificent legacy. Along with Greece, it is remembered as the birthplace of Western culture, spread by the Roman Empire’s far-reaching influence. The competition between independent city-states and kingdoms, and the patronage of the dynasties that controlled them, gave Italy the birthplace of the Renaissance, and fostered the emergence of men of genius, such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. It stands to a whole host of reasons why it is home to the greatest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world.
