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.
Family-friendly places like Canal Grande and Ponte di Rialto will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Verona (Chiesa dei Santi Apostoli, Arena di Verona, &more). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Doge's Palace, take in panoramic vistas at St Mark's Campanile, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, and pause for some photo ops at Punta della Dogana.
