Teatro alla Scala
This large opera house was built in 1776 by Giuseppe Piermarini on the central site of Santa Maria della Scala, an old church that was built in 1381. In 1943 it was badly bombed and rebuilt three years later. Highlights include the Museo del Teatro (theatre museum) which was founded in 1913 and is home to a fine collection of sculpture, paintings and ceramics, and also La Scala's Ballet School which was founded in 1813 and has produced many famous students.
Boat Bridge
Daily island tours of Burano, Murano and Torcello are run by the Cooperativa San Marco, from April to November. The tours are approximately 3.5 hours long and depart at 09:30 and also 14:30 from the Giardini Reali, nearby the Piazza San Marco. Tickets can be purchased at the Alilaguna kiosk.
Santa Maria della Salute

This famous Venetian landmark dominates the view of the Grand Canal from the lagoon and the water is reflected on its bright surface. The Ciesa di Santa Maria della Salute is a very individual and beautiful octagonal church, built partly of 'marmorino', a brick covered with marble dust. It was constructed between 1631 to 1681 in thanksgiving after Venice began to recover from the great plague of 1630 to 1631. It was designed by Longhena and has an enormous white dome and very grand baroque- style architecture.

Cimitero Monumentale

The Cimitero Monumentale contains many tombs and shrines, produced by famous sculptors. It was created in 1866 and is simply vast, covering an area more than 250,000 square metres. Highlights include the Famedio (House of Fame), a pantheon-style building where many well-known and highly regarded people are buried and numerous tombs and shrines, many of which are works of art in their own right. The Cimitero Monumentale is situated in north-east Milan and there is a free map of the cemetery available at the entrance.

Palazzo Litta
The Palazzo Litta was built in 1648 for Count Bartolomeo Arese by Francesco Maria Richini. Around 100 years later the interior was updated and also the pink facade was added by the heirs, the Litta Visconti Arese. The palace is highly regarded and widely believed to be one of the most beautiful examples of 18th-century architecture in the region. Highlights include many stunning rooms
Boboli Gardens
The Boboli Gardens are the most popular sight to see in Florence. The gardens are rich and extravagant pleasure-gardens with large expanses to explore, and photogenic views over Florence. Designed by the Grand Dukes as a venue for extravagant parties and celebrations, the garden is dotted with statuary, fountains and a variety of features commissioned specially, or taken from the fabulous Medici art collections. The Boboli Gardens spread over the steep hillside behind the vast Pitti Palace, over the Arno from central Florence.
Pitti Palace
The sloping frontage that forms the Piazza de' Pitti is closed on three sides by the circling wings of the Palace, which the Florentines have always been reluctant to call the Royal Palace because of their innate tendency for understatement, in spite of the fact that the building has hosted all the ruling dynasties (the Medicis, the Lorraines, the Bourbons, the Bonapartes, the Savoys) ever since Cosimo I's wife, the beautiful and rich Duchess Eleonora of Toledo, bought it from Buonaccorso Pitti in 1550 to turn it into the new home of the Medici family.
