Not surprisingly, Danish chef Rene Redzepi’s restaurant Noma topped the list of the hardest restaurants to get into in the world, as it receives 20,000 reservation requests a day. The earliest reservations can be made are three months out.

The Piazza Navona was built in 1644 over the exact area where Domitian’s Stadium used to stand and where games and horse racing took place from 86 CE.
