UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Which country has the most UNESCO sites? Italy! 

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Sites are places of importance to cultural or natural heritage. Italy has 54 of them. 5 of them are natural and include Mt. Etna (the volcano in Sicily) and the Dolomites (a mountain range in northeastern Italy) and the remaining 49 are of cultural significance. They are as diverse as they are interesting!  Those sites include historical centers of cities, churches, landscapes of vineyards, prehistoric dwellings...even entire towns!
