Planning a trip to Italy? Did you know that Italy has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country in the world? 51 to be exact. China is next in line with 50. World Heritage sites are recognized by the United Nations for their cultural, historical, scientific or other value and are protected under international treaties. They are also great places to visit. The entire historical center of Rome has been included, including the Roman Forum pictured above.
My brother is coming to visit Rome for the very first time and I am trying to decide what sites he can’t miss. The Roman Forum is obviously a no brainer. But what else? There is so much to see.
