Venice — 2 nights

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 of St. Anthony). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, admire the landmark architecture of Basilica di San Marco, explore the world behind art at Gallerie dell'Accademia, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza San Marco.

It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond.
