Unesco World Heritage List
In one of the other threads Shirley mentioned a Unesco World Heritage site. We have a lot of much travelled people on here so I though I will start a thread off and see how many of the sites we have visited between us. Just list the additional ones you have visited that haven't been listed and count down off the list. The list has 878 sites.
