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: Verona (Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore, Arena di Verona, &more) and Scrovegni Chapel (in Padua). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Canal Grande, explore the world behind art at Gallerie dell'Accademia, contemplate the long history of St Mark's Campanile, and snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto.

To see other places to visit, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Venice online attractions planner.

Madison, USA to Venice is an approximately 15-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Central European Standard Time (CET) is 7 hours.
