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 di Miramare - Museo Storico and Cannaregio. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Piazza San Marco and Basilica di San Marco. Venture out of the city with trips to Verona (Casa di Giulietta, Piazza delle Erbe, &more), Grado (Basilica of Santa Eufemia & Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie) and Basilica di Aquileia (in Aquileia). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Giorgio Maggiore, wander the streets of Dorsoduro, take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, and step off the mainland to explore Lido.

For traveler tips, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Venice trip itinerary planning app.
