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.
Let the collections at Doge's Palace and Peggy Guggenheim Collection capture your imagination. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Scrovegni Chapel and Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. Explore Venice's surroundings by going to Basilica of St. Anthony (in Padua) and Castello Estense (in Ferrara). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Piazza San Marco, contemplate the long history of Ponte dei Sospiri, take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, and admire the striking features of Basilica di San Marco.
