Must-see destinations in Italy

Eupedia strives to provide a fair and objective rating for all destinations and attractions in its travel guides using well-defined criteria. We compare all sights against each others, not just within a same region or country, but between European countries as well. This is why our ratings have the same value in every country. A must-see destination (indicated by must-see) is a must-see destination, no matter where you are. Some regions don't have any, while others boast many of them. Since objectivity is essential for us, we did not attempt to be "politically correct" by giving a balanced number of must-see places in every region.
