World's Coolest New Tourist Attractions

New Tourist Attractions: Cinecittà World

Cinecittà Parchi S.p.A. - Artwork by Dante Ferretti - Cinecittà World – Entrance

Cinecittà World, Rome

The Eternal City has no shortage of attractions, from amazing architecture to The Vatican. But what it doesn’t have is a theme park—until now. Organizers say the much-delayed movie-themed Cinecittà World will finally open in the first half of 2014 just south of Rome, in a lot near to where classics such as Ben-Hur, La Dolce Vita, Cleopatra, and, more recently, Gangs of New York and the HBO series Rome were shot. The first phase of the $700 million project will include family-friendly rides with designs by Oscar-winning production designer Dante Ferretti, while following phases will add more thrill rides, restaurants, retail, and, naturally, movie theaters. cinecittaworld.it
