Favorite thing: Italy’s the country featuring many of the most famous UNESCO sites of the world. Here’s what you can see in this line:

1996 - Castel del Monte

So, years 1995 and 1996 have been really fruitful for conservation or monuments in the country. From the list, I’ve seen the ones in Pisa, Rome, Venice, Vicenza, Florence, Milan, Ferrara, and Ravenna.
