Venice, Italy

Venice ©
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Food Tours and Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Venice: Padua (Centro Storico, Orto Botanico di Padova, &more). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Centro Storico di Venezia, see the interesting displays at Doge's Palace, take in the spiritual surroundings of Scuola Grande di San Rocco, and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.
