Venice
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.
Get some cultural insight at Doges' Palace and Cannaregio. Popular historic sites such as St. Mark's Square and Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute are in your itinerary. 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.

To see traveler tips, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, read Venice travel itinerary planner.

New York City, USA to Venice is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. Traveling from New York City to Venice, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference.

Cinque Terre ©
Made up of five picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre is Italy's answer to the French Riviera.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Centro Storico del Paese di Tellaro and Castello Malaspina. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Footpath Monterosso - Vernazza and Spiaggia di Fegina. Venture out of the city with trips to Isola Palmaria (in Porto Venere), Punta Corvo (in Ameglia) and Bagno Maurizio (in Viareggio). There's more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Convento dei Cappuccini e Chiesa di San Francesco.
