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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Venice: Padua (Scrovegni Chapel & Basilica of St. Anthony). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Canal Grande, don't miss a visit to Basilica di San Marco, admire the masterpieces at Gallerie dell'Accademia, and explore the galleries of Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
