Roman Monuments in Italy
Latest update: 19 February 2022
There are thousands of Roman monuments in Italy, a legacy of the Roman Empire which lasted 500 years and at its peak, extended to every corner of the globe. So many countries were affected by the omnipotent Roman Empire but of course with Italy being its centre of operations, no country can match the quality and breadth of sights that are still standing from the period.
Italy is littered with well-preserved landmarks with the Colosseum in Rome being just the most famous tip of a very deep iceberg. Of course these landmarks are not solely restricted to the city of Rome itself; they can be found in every corner of Italy from the Alps down to Sicily.
Magnificent stadia such as the Verona Arena or any number of Roman theatres, amphitheatres, triumphal arches, temples and even an ancient pyramid are featured on this list of the most memorable.
