City of Romance

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.

On the next day, admire the landmark architecture of Scala Contarini del Bovolo, don't miss a visit to Peggy Guggenheim Collection, then enjoy breathtaking views from St Mark's Campanile, then admire the landmark architecture of Basilica di San Marco, and finally explore the world behind art at Museo Correr.
