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 find plenty of places to visit near Venice: Verona (Palazzo della Ragione, Piazza delle Erbe, & more) and Padua (Scrovegni Chapel & Basilica di Sant’Antonio). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, steep yourself in history at St Mark's Campanile, admire the masterpieces at Gallerie dell'Accademia, and snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Venice route builder tool .
