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 some historical perspective at St. Mark's Square and Ponte dei Sospiri. Doges' Palace and Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo (San Zanipolo) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Venice: Padua (Scrovegni Chapel & Basilica di Sant’Antonio - Basilica del Santo). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Canal Grande, steep yourself in history at St Mark's Campanile, admire the landmark architecture of Scala Contarini del Bovolo, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Campo del Ghetto.
