Venice

— 2 nights

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.
Bring the kids along to Canal Grande and Basilica di San Marco. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Dorsoduro and San Giorgio Maggiore. There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Doge's Palace, take a stroll through Cannaregio, take in panoramic vistas at Torre dell'Orologio, and don't miss a visit to Piazza San Marco.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, read our Venice trip itinerary maker.
