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), Padua (Chiesa degli Eremitani, Scrovegni Chapel, &more) and Verona (Chiesa di San Zeno in Oratorio, Casa Del Clero, &more). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Doge's Palace, take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Giorgio Maggiore, and admire the striking features of Basilica di San Marco.

For reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Venice driving holiday planner.

Asheville, USA to Venice is an approximately 16-hour flight. Traveling from Asheville to Venice, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference. In May, plan for daily highs up to 72°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) early enough to travel to Tirana.
