Off the western coast of the mainland, and in the heart of the Tyrrhenian Sea, is the island of Sardinia. While Sardinia boasts a number of stunning beaches, none is so picturesque or well-known as La Pelosa. The beach is so spectacular because of its sandy shores and shallow waters, making it easy to see right down to the ground through crystal-clear sea. La Pelosa is often compared to the Caribbean, bringing some of the tropics to Italy. Surfing, kayaking and even scuba diving are all possible at or near La Pelosa.
In many other top 10 tourist attractions in Italy lists, you won’t find Da Vinci’s Last Supper (Il Cenacolo). But if you are an art lover and don’t want to miss the magnificent work of great Da Vinci, you got to keep it in your visiting list. “The Last Supper” is Da Visci’s visual interpretation of an event narrated in all 4 of the Gospels. The famous wall painting, measuring 15 x 29 feet (460 x 880 cm), depicts the evening before Jesus Christ was betrayed by one of his disciples. He gathered everybody to eat his last supper and to tell them that he knew what was coming. He showed all his disciples how to eat and drink in his tribute. The painting is located on the wall of the dining hall beside the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, on the western periphery of central Milan.

In the 79 AD’s eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the city of Pompeii and nearby areas was mostly buried and destroyed under 13 to 20 ft (4 to 6 m) of pumice and ash, and consequently preserving the city in its condition from that historic day. Excavation of the city of Pompeii has provided a marvelous view and insight of people living there around 2000 years ago. Currently, Pompeii is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Italy. Every year, around 2.5 million tourists visit this ancient city of Pompeii.
Back in AD 79, Vesuvius was just a large hill to those who lived around the today’s bay of Naples. Little did they realize that the immense cloud that cast over the eastern sky on a sunny August afternoon heralded the end of the prosperous Roman town, and the birth of splendor that its ruins are endowed with today. The excavations offer a glimpse into Roman life in the 1st century, frozen at the moment it was wrecked with pyroclastic flows and buried under layers of ash. The well-preserved forum, the baths, many houses, and some suburban villas gloriously testify to dramatic events that claimed as many as 2,000 lives and went down in history as the most devastating volcanic eruption ever.
