Venice

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.
Piazza San Marco and Basilica of St. Anthony are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Scala Contarini del Bovolo and Campo del Ghetto. Change things up with a short trip to Scrovegni Chapel in Padua (about 54 minutes away). There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of Doge's Palace, make a trip to Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo (San Zanipolo), take in panoramic vistas at St Mark's Campanile, and snap pictures at Ponte dei Sospiri.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Venice day trip site.

Rome to Venice is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. When traveling from Rome in August, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Venice: temperatures range from 34°C by day to 22°C at night. You'll have a few hours on the 8th (Tue) to wrap things up before traveling to Pisa.
