In the round around Italy: great art on the streets of Italy

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Italy is said to house more than half the world’s greatest artworks. But they are not all locked away in museums.

Here is a tiny selection of statues seen in some of the streets and piazzas of Italy and the Vatican that go towards the 100,000 or so monuments in Italy.

We’ve thrown in a few fun and modern works too just to show that Italy’s creative juices didn’t all dry up in the Renaissance.


Our guides can help you see the sites on the city streets of Florence, Rome and Venice. We also have great guided tours of Italy’s great museums such as the Accademia to see Michelangelo’s David, Uffizi Gallery small-group tour,  Vatican and St. Peters guided tour, Doge’s Palace with a tour guide, and more.
