20 masterpieces not to miss in Italy, one per region!

Italy is the top country in the world for cultural, historical and architectural heritage. We know that that’s no news to anyone, everyone knows that, but for Italians this is always a reason for pride, something we like to be reminded of. And it’s always a great feeling for us to think that, because you will find precious pieces of art at pretty much every street corner, tourists who come to Italy will be spoilt for choice — so much so that they might feel slightly disoriented and confused when they have to choose where to go visit! This is why we are here to help: we picked 20 art masterpieces you really shouldn’t miss in Italy, one for each region. Tourists from all over the world, feel free to print out this article, and use it to plan an amazing Italian tour: your journey will be truly unforgettable!
