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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Tour Leader Venice. Step out of the city life by going to Canal Grande and Blue Moon. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Doge's Palace and Piazza San Marco. Get out of town with these interesting Venice side-trips: Basilica of St. Anthony (in Padua) and Sabbia e Sale Feeling Beach (in Chioggia). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di San Marco, don't miss a visit to Scala Contarini del Bovolo, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chiesa di San Zaccaria, and take in the views from Ponte dei Sospiri.
