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.
Family-friendly places like Canal Grande and Ponte di Rialto will thrill your kids. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laguna Veneta and Lido. Step out of Venice to go to Sottomarina and see Diga Sottomarina, which is approximately 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of St. Mark's Square, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, admire the striking features of Basilica di San Marco, and see the interesting displays at Doge's Palace.
