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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mulin dal Flec, o dal Ross (in Tolmezzo), Verona (Chiesa di San Zeno in Oratorio, Casa Del Clero, & more) and Padua (Chiesa degli Eremitani, Scrovegni Chapel, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Canal Grande, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, and contemplate the long history of Ponte dei Sospiri.
