Venice

— 3 nights

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.
Get some cultural insight at Piazza San Marco and Basilica di San Marco. Visit Doge's Palace and Peggy Guggenheim Collection for their historical value. Explore Venice's surroundings by going to Padua (Basilica of St. Anthony & Scrovegni Chapel). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, admire the masterpieces at Gallerie dell'Accademia, contemplate the long history of Squero di San Trovaso, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.

Plan a trip to Venice easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
