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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Giacomo Rizzo, Palazzo Labia, L'altra Venezia, and other attractions. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Beach Barcola and Military Memorial Redipuglia. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Pomposa Abbey and Centro Storico di Treviso. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Venice: I Portoni della Bra (in Verona), I Resti Archeologici Basilica della Corte (in Grado) and Molo Audace (in Trieste). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of San Pantalon, steep yourself in history at Piazza dei Signori, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta e Chiesa di Santa Fosca.

You can plan Venice trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Venice Marco Polo Airport, Treviso-Sant'Angelo Airport and Trieste–Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 1°C. You'll have a few hours on the 27th (Fri) to wrap things up before traveling to Padua.

Padua ©
Padua is a picturesque city with a dense network of arcaded streets opening into large communal piazze (squares).
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ragione Palace. Chiesa di Santa Sofia and Tempio della Beata Vergine del Soccorso detta La Rotonda will appeal to history buffs. Discover out-of-the-way places like Chiesa di San Lorenzo and Museo del Precinema. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Padua: Corso Palladio (in Vicenza) and Parco Naturale Regionale del Delta del Po (in Rovigo). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Zuckermann Palace, explore the ancient world of Teatro Anatomico, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cattedrale Santa Maria Assunta nella Cattedrale, and make a trip to Santuario di San Leopoldo Mandic.

Padua is very close to Venice. When traveling from Venice in December, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Padua: temperatures range from 7°C by day to 2°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) so you can take a train back home.
