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.
Get out of town with these interesting Venice side-trips: Arena di Verona (in Verona) and Scrovegni Chapel (in Padua). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Canal Grande, admire the masterpieces at Gallerie dell'Accademia, enjoy breathtaking views from St Mark's Campanile, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza San Marco.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Venice fast, fun, and easy.
