Venice

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.
You'll explore and learn at Doge's Palace and Gallerie dell'Accademia. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Basilica of St. Anthony and Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. Change things up with these side-trips from Venice: Padua (Chiesa degli Eremitani, Scrovegni Chapel, &more). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza San Marco, admire the striking features of Scala Contarini del Bovolo, and take a stroll through Cannaregio.

You can plan Venice trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
