Italy has it all: history, culture, art, food, mountains, lakes, beaches…the list is endless.

But there is just no pleasing some people.

We get that crowds of tourists, being ripped off and selfie sticks can blight any decent holiday.

But this is not what has irked some visitors to Italy, who have either been left totally unimpressed by some of the country's famous treasures – or completely bewildered.

We took a look through the reviews of some of Italy's key places on TripAdvisor – and were left equally as baffled, and entertained, by some of them.

Here are but a few:
