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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Castello del Catajo and La Cinta Muraria - Camminamento di Ronda. Pomposa Abbey and Doge's Palace will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Venice: Aquileia (Casa Violin di Aquileia & Basilica di Aquileia), Padua (Basilica di Santa Giustina, Battistero del Duomo, & more) and Vicenza (Piazza dei Signori & Santuario della Madonna di Monte Berico). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, admire the striking features of Scuola Grande di San Rocco, make a trip to Basilica di San Marco, and wander the streets of Campo del Ghetto.
