Italy - is one of the oldest European countries, which has its wonderful and interesting history. There are three of all world wonders in Italy.

The Church of St. Peter, or also known as the Temple on the tomb of apostle.

The Apostle Peter was the most courageous among the Disciples of Christ. After the death of the Master when the apostles went to different countries to preach about new faith, Peter, knowing that eventually he will be severely tortured and executed, chose Rome himself- a stronghold of unbelief and brutality. In 64 AD, in the reign of Emperor Nero, Peter was crucified, and for the death to be particularly painful, he was hanged upside down. But this fearless man, who became the first Pope, had converted many people to Christianity. Even his death became the preaching of a new faith: the tomb of the Apostle was visited by crowds of people to worship.

Emperor Constantine the Great had ordered to erect a chapel over the tomb of Peter, which stood here a thousand years. When in 1452 this modest construction was time worn, Pope Nicholas V decided to build a new church there. Probably, the decision was hasty – he shouldn’t destroy what Christians worshiped for thousand years. It's no wonder 170 years in succession the construction went wrong, and all those who participated in it, did not reach old age: Nicholas V, architect Bramante, painter Raphael, sculptor Michelangelo…

Finally in 1626 the contraction was completed, a famous dome of the Christian church was lifted over Rome, it has been long the highest in the world. Here is located the famous Sistine Chapel, which keeps works of the most outstanding artists of the Italian Renaissance - Raphael and Michelangelo. The cathedral has the world's largest collection of works of art and a huge library.

And since 1929, it became the centre of the state of the Popes - Vatican, and the spiritual capital of all Catholic world. Located within Rome, it has its own army and police. Hired Swiss Guards dressed in a bright yellow-and-black striped uniform designed by Michelangelo with halberds in their hands became the object of tourist fascination. Thy use their own currency, publish newspapers, Catholic radio and television stations are functioning there.

And all this diverse modern life passes near the grave of the courageous disciple of Christ. Laying the foundation of the cathedral through a punched hole in the masonry, they saw the grave and a large gold cross. The workers called the Pope Clement VIII, and asked what they have to do? The high Priest remembered an ancient curse that threatens instant death to anyone who disturbed the tomb of Peter. He ordered to brick up a hole and leave alone. Now over the tomb an altar of the cathedral is erected.

The most famous tower in the world - is Pisa

In the north-west of the Apennine peninsula the town of Pisa is located. The streets here are quiet, narrow and gray. Great shadows of tall buildings fall on the road. But it is worth, to walk across the main of them - Via Solferino, to gasp at the sight of the beautiful buildings on the square, filled with bright sunlight. There are four of them: Cathedral of Pisa, Campo Santo, baptistery and the famous bell tower of the cathedral. Its full name is Torre Pendante, which means "The Leaning Tower." Due to it tourists come here to see and perhaps involuntarily exclaim: "Oh, it may fall!"

Similarly, people worried, and 600 years ago, when a 55-meter tower, build for two centuries suddenly began to lurch. It has not yet fall, but continues slowly to lean toward the ground. Today, it has deviated 4.5 meters away from the vertical position and it is expected according to scientists, to fall - in fifty years. This feature was used by a native of Pisa, the famous scientist Galileo Galilei. He climbed to the top of the bell tower and threw down a variety of items, learning the laws of physics.

To save the tower a competition for the best project of salvation this wonder of the world was announced. The proposals received were very different: witty and utterly ridiculous. Some suggested launching the tram around the tower to tamp gradually the soil, and then it would not fall. Others wanted to attach to it a giant balloon filled with a gas. And still others offered constantly pray to God that He did not let the tower fall. And still others said that it is necessary to make a pile of sand next to the tower: it would fall anyway, so at least not be broken. And still others argued blaming the architect who constructed the bell tower on loose soil - he should correct his mistake. So it should be created a huge reinforced concrete statue of architect Bonanno Pisano that he "supported" his tower.

And somehow, in all this fuss is forgotten the former glory of the republic of Pisa - a small, proud state, which issue a challenge to the whole world.

Venice - is a city of canals and carnivals

Venice in the Middle Ages was the commercial and cultural capital of the West and East.  And, although the glory of the Venetian Republic is in the past, here almost everything is a work of art. Primarily, the Doge's Palace was owned by the rulers of the city-state. The famous giant staircase of marble and gold led to the indoor premises.

The second wonder of Venice – is St. Mark's Cathedral. Each governor of the city considered it their duty to make valuable gifts for the temple, and therefore today one of the most comprehensive collections of works of art of the Italian Renaissance is present there. The most amazing decoration of this temple is its mosaic floor, which depicted scenes from the glorious events from the past of Venice. Multiple channels, which replace the streets here, can be called the third wonder.

People do not go to visit somebody by cars, but by special boats gondolas, managed by gondoliers. The largest and most beautiful is the Canal Grande, Grand Canal, on which gondolas are moving in several rows, and the songs of the gondoliers merge into one chorus.

But of course, here people not only use boats but also go on foot. Therefore, in Venice a great deal of bridges and walkways is mounted. The Rialto and Bridge of Sighs - are the most famous of them. At the Rialto there are shops in three rows, which sell everything. Well, the Bridge of Sighs received its name because of beliefs: it was believed that the guards led condemned prisoners to death across it, and those people for the last time looked at channels of their hometown, sighing, and saying goodbye to life.

Later it was proved that no criminal was led through the famous bridge to execution place. And therefore there was nobody to sigh and cheerful Venetians are not used to sadness.

The fourth wonder of Venice can be traditional festivities, carnivals passing there, for which for many centuries special costumes and masks were designed.

And the last wonder - pigeons of St. Mark. He once sent with this bird news of the victory. Since pigeons in Venice are considered to be sacred birds.
