Trivia: We have 6
Though this is one manga series, so far there have been six distinct story arcs, each with a different setting and stock of characters. They are as follows:
Part I - Jonathan Joestar in 1880 England (Volumes 1-4)
Part II - Josef Joestar in 1937 New York (Volumes 5-12)
Part III - Jotaro Kujo in early 1989 Egypt (Volumes 13-28)
Part IV - Josuke Higashikata in 1999 (Volumes 29-45)
Part V - Giorno Giovanni in early 2000s Italy (Volumes 46-63)
Part VI: Stone Ocean - Jolyne Kujo in 2011 Florida (Volumes 64-80) 
Viz's release of JoJo skips the first twelve volumes and jumps right into the third story arc with Jotaro Kujo (upon which the anime is based).
