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.
Relax by the water at Jamaica Beach and Spiaggia Punta Gro. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Castello Scaligero and Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Venice: Verona (Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore & Ponte Scaligero (Ponte di Castelvecchio)) and Grotte di Catullo (in Sirmione). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Cannaregio, contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, make a trip to Dorsoduro, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di San Marco.
