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 Venice's surroundings by going to Padua (Scrovegni Chapel & Basilica di Sant’Antonio). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Canal Grande, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di San Marco, explore the world behind art at Gallerie dell'Accademia, and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.

Plan my trip to Venice with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Little Rock, USA to Venice is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight.
