Rome's Colosseum has been reconfirmed as the most popular tourist attraction in the world, for the second year in a row, based on booking data compiled by TripAdvisor.
Italy has once again scored highly in the 2019 global rankings and together with the US is the only nation to have three tourist sites in the Top 10 list.
In addition to the Colosseum, the list includes the Vatican Museums in third place and Piazza S. Marco in Venice in tenth position. The Louvre in Paris is in second place.
The top 10 list of tourist attractions has the Colosseum in the lead, followed by the Vatican Museums and Venice's Piazza S. Marco in third place, with Pompeii and the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence in fourth and fifth positions respectively.
The sixth most popular tourist attraction in Italy is the Duomo of Milan, followed by the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence, Palazzo Ducale in Venice, and Galleria Borghese in Rome.
In 2018 the Colosseum welcomed a record 7.6 million visitors - an average of around 21,000 people a day.
