New Year's Eve in Italy
The Italian capital city is home to many architectural and historical masterpieces, legacy of the ancient Roman Empire: the Colosseum, the Circo Massimo and the Pantheon are just a few examples of what we can find walking along the streets of the Eternal City. At its very heart we find the Vatican, the city-state of Roman Catholic Church led by Pope Francis. Indeed, Italy hosts some of the most relevant places of worship for Catholics. Italy means also Venice, a city characterized by its uniqueness. It was founded on a lagoon in the 6th century as a way to avoid barbaric attacks, which were common in those times. Venice has a truly magic atmosphere. The lack of cars, its gondolas gliding fast on its canals, its majestic buildings, that look like suspended on water: when there, one feels like living in a childhood fairytale. New Year’s Eve livens up Venice: its narrow streets burst with celebrations and the fireworks in Piazza San Marco illuminate the lagoon with a thousand colors.
