It was unsurprising to see Rome’s much-visited Colosseum and Venice’s St Mark’s Square feature in the Lonely Planet’s ‘Ultimate travel list’, published earlier this week. But what about Italy’s more obscure gems?

The Colosseum ranked number seven out of 500 of the world’s most unforgettable sights in the Lonely Planet list, falling between America’s Grand Canyon and Uguazú Falls, on the border of Brazil and Argentina.

“There’s nothing like a feisty Roman monument to rev up your inner historian, and the Colosseum performs brilliantly,” the publication said.

Venice’s St Mark’s Square came in at 27.

But these are already world-famous icons of Italy, and obvious places to visit.

The Local came up with 10 that you might want to see before the tourist hordes descend.
