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.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Venice: Padua (Scrovegni Chapel, Battistero del Duomo, & more) and Passeggiata lungo la restera (in Treviso). Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Canal Grande, admire the striking features of St Mark's Campanile, snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto, and make a trip to Basilica di San Marco.

Made up of five picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre is Italy's answer to the French Riviera.
