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.
Popular historic sites such as St. Mark's Square and Basilica di San Marco are in your itinerary. You'll get in some beach time at Blue Moon and Bahia del Sole. Get out of town with these interesting Venice side-trips: Lido di Spina (Bagno Kursaal 61 & Bagno Corallo-Beach 46), Bibione (La spiaggia di Pluto & Bibione Spiaggia) and Eraclea Beach (in Eraclea Mare). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Doge's Palace, snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto, contemplate the long history of Centro Storico di Venezia, and enjoy the sand and surf at Sabbia e Sale Feeling Beach.
