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 Centro Storico di Venezia and Prato della Valle. Change things up with these side-trips from Venice: Verona (Piazzale Castel San Pietro, Ponte Scaligero (Ponte di Castelvecchio), & more) and No Exit (in Udine). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, get to know the fascinating history of Piazza San Marco, wander the streets of Cannaregio, and make a trip to Torre dell'Orologio.

To see reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Venice journey planner.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Venice is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone difference moving from Gulf Standard Time to Central European Time is minus 3 hours. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Dubai in October, with highs in Venice at 22°C and lows at 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) to allow time to take a train to Milan.

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Food Tours and Dialogo nel Buio. Change things up with these side-trips from Milan: Brescia Castle (in Brescia), Museo del Violino (in Cremona) and Alba (Centro Storico & Langhe landscapes UNESCO). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Duomo di Milano, get engrossed in the history at Villa Necchi Campiglio, step into the grandiose world of Castello Sforzesco, and admire the striking features of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
