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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Piazza San Marco and San Giorgio Maggiore. Step out of the city life by going to Canal Grande and Giudecca. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Scuola Grande di San Rocco, admire the landmark architecture of Venetian Arsenal, don't miss a visit to Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, and get to know the fascinating history of Centro Storico di Venezia.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Venice trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Melbourne, Australia to Venice is an approximately 26-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 9 hours traveling from Melbourne to Venice. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Melbourne in May: high temperatures in Venice hover around 26°C and lows are around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Thu) so you can drive to Verona.
