    2011-01-11

    Those who are planning a trip abroad in the new year will find that a vacation to Italy has become more convenient than ever. With new services being introduced at tourist spots all around the country, tourists will be able to make wonderful memories in a stress-free environment.

    The capital city of Rome, for example, has implemented several new projects for its most popular attractions. Those who want to visit the Vatican will be able to make use of its new automated reservation system, which allows tourists to make reservations online. According to MSNBC, the advanced technology has been well-received by travelers.

    The Colosseum attracts millions of visitors every year, therefore officials must keep up the ancient structure's appearance. Not only is the amphitheater being cleaned up, but permanent light fixtures will be installed for a beautiful illuminated sight in the evening and formerly restricted areas will be opened to the public.

    In Florence, famous cultural institutions are undergoing extensive renovations to keep a fresh look, including the Uffizi Gallery and the Galileo Science Museum.

    Those who are worried about safety on the narrow Italian streets will be happy to know that many roads in its cities have become pedestrianized.
