Italy is home to the most number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world. All over the country are historic buildings, monuments, museums and all kinds of places to visit that will make your Italy vacation truly eventful. You cannot go on an Italy vacation without doing some sightseeing. In fact, this is one of the most cited reasons for visiting. The country has a rich culture and history, high fashion, good food, friendly people, best wine and a center of Catholicism. It is important to make sure you see the most important sights before you leave.

People make the most of their vacation with the popular photo and video sharing app, Instagram. Forget about the flooding of duck faced selfies’ and ego boosting videos, rather follow people’s post about wonderful scenery and hang-outs of their recent vacation. Instagram is really great tool to plan a memorable vacation.

I have collected random favorite Instagram-worthy photos that capture the beauty of Italy. Check this out!

Caution: After seeing these photos, you’ll definitely plan to visit Italy now.

If you are a savvy sightseer or traveler and know some Italian you may be able to arrange to see all these sights for yourself. But you may want to consider having everything arranged by someone else because you don’t want to miss any of the important places and you will benefit greatly from a guided tour. There are several sightseeing companies that offer tours for visitors. Guided tours will usually follow a pre-set route through a city or town during your Italy vacation. Not only are the guides fluent in English but they also have a wealth of information on the historical sights and there are opportunities to ask questions. Some tours on your Italian vacation will allow you to get off the tour vehicle to explore and then catch another tour vehicle from the same company later on.
