Gosh! Where to begin?
Well, it's not a huge country but there's a great diversity and a lot of things to do and see depending on what are you interested in (beaches? skiing? landscapes? historic cities? cuisine?), so it's kind of difficult.

10. Bassano del Grappa, and its wooden bridge on the Brenta river. The bridge is actually a copy of the original one designed by Andrea Palladio in 1567 and lost during WW2. It is named Ponte degli Alpini (literally Bridge of the Alpines) in honour of Italy's mountain corps, who guarded for centuries the nearby border and still have a strong affective bond to the people of the North East of the country.

It's true!
Bassano is one of my favourite places in the Veneto region. I strongly recommend to visit this gorgeous town if you ever come in this part of Italy.

12. Two villas by the sea in the Cinque Terre area, on the eastern half of the Riviera. Hopefully buildings in this kind of locations aren't allowed any more.

Liguria is like Provence but better (they make good pastas and the buildings are more colorfull)

Naa not true. I agree just on cuisine.
Besides, Provence has countryside (and a beautiful one), which is something Liguria totally lacks.

I partially agree with Eklips, because I just think that Provence too is absolutely amazing!

Agreed with Federico about the cuisine.

BTW, honestly kinda colorful villas just next to the sea are lovely!

Well what I said was quite random, I have never really been in Liguria (just went through a bit of it by car). But the colorfull buildings really look good!

13. Martorana and San Cataldo churches in Palermo. They were built by the Normans in 12nd century, but the Arab influence on their architecture is quite obvious.

Amazing architecture; I can´t wait to visit Sicily.

As for the pic of Bassano del Grappa, all I can say is

Marvelous thread.

14. The main square in Trento, capital of Trentino (the southern half of Trentino-South Tyrol region).
Quite a sharp contrast compared to the preceding picture, don't you think?
