Number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Italy—more than in any other country. Of these, two are wine regions, including Langhe-Roero/Monferrato in Piedmont and Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene. There are at least 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites devoted to wine. Earning a place on the List can have real economic benefits—according to the St. Emilion tourism office, 30% of all visitors to the French wine region come because of its UNESCO status.
