City of Romance

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.
Explore hidden gems such as Castello Estense and San Giorgio Maggiore. Get a sense of the local culture at Cannaregio and Campo del Ghetto. Get out of town with these interesting Venice side-trips: Scrovegni Chapel (in Padua) and Verona (Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore & Museo di Castelvecchio). There's lots more to do: let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, snap pictures at Ponte dei Sospiri, and admire the striking features of Scuola Grande di San Rocco.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Venice online tour planner.
