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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Patrizia Prencipe and Piazza delle Erbe. Get some cultural insight at Piazza San Marco and Cappella dei Notai. Get out of town with these interesting Venice side-trips: Verona (Museo di Castelvecchio & Arena di Verona). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Doge's Palace, admire the landmark architecture of Basilica di San Marco, snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto, and contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande.
