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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Dorsoduro and Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. Venture out of the city with trips to Verona (Piazzale Castel San Pietro, Ponte Scaligero (Ponte di Castelvecchio), &more), Prato della Valle (in Padua) and No Exit (in Udine). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, see the interesting displays at Doge's Palace, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and admire the striking features of Basilica di San Marco.

To see photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, read Venice online itinerary builder.

In many ways the most modern of Italian cities, Milan is a busy, elegant metropolis with an impressive list of grand palaces, fine churches, and important museums.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Dialogo nel Buio and Museo del Violino. Get out of town with these interesting Milan side-trips: Brescia Castle (in Brescia), Bergamo (Piazza Vecchia & Mura Venete) and Alba (Centro Storico & Langhe landscapes UNESCO). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Milano, take in the spiritual surroundings of Abbazia di Chiaravalle, admire the striking features of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and explore the world behind art at Bagatti Valsecchi Museum.
