Venice

Venice ©
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to San Giorgio Maggiore and Dorsoduro. Piazza San Marco and Doge's Palace are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Venice to go to Aquileia and see Basilica di Aquileia, which is approximately 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Cannaregio, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, take in panoramic vistas at Torre dell'Orologio, and steep yourself in history at Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

To find more things to do, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read Venice visit planner .
