Colosseum is the Most Popular Attraction in the World

According to TripAdvisor data for 2018, the Colosseum is the most popular attraction with the most bookings, closely followed by the Vatican Museums and Venice’s Grand Canal.

Based on tour bookings, TripAdvisor has announced Rome’s Colosseum as the world’s most popular attraction. Second place was taken by the Vatican Museums and the Grand Canal of Venice also featured in the top ten.

This data confirms Rome as a top destination for those who have never visited Italy before and suggests that a twin-centre holiday to Rome and Venice would be a wonderful way to discover some of the world’s best attractions.


Speaking about the news, TripAdvisor spokeswoman Valentina Quattro said: “It is a source of great pride that growth is greater to some of the many icons of our beautiful country, demonstrating that we are still at the top of the travelers’ list of world attractions". Solidifying this, data shows that by the end of 2018 Rome had welcomed 15 million tourists!

And on a national scale? The three most popular attractions in Italy in the global ranking after the Colosseum were the Vatican Museums, the Grand Canal, the Pompeii Archaeological Park, and the Accademia and Uffizi Galleries in Florence.
