Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
Get some cultural insight at Piazza San Marco and Doge's Palace. Museum-lovers will appreciate Peggy Guggenheim Collection and Gallerie dell'Accademia. Venture out of the city with trips to Laguna di Bibione (in Bibione), Riviera 6 - Bagno 6 (in Lignano Riviera) and Le Tegnue dell'Alto Adriatico (in Caorle). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at San Giorgio Maggiore, wander the streets of Cannaregio, appreciate the extensive heritage of Centro Storico di Venezia, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
