— 1 night

City of Romance

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.
On the 18th (Mon), take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, admire the landmark architecture of Basilica di San Marco, admire the striking features of Doge's Palace, snap pictures at Ponte dei Sospiri, then don't miss a visit to Piazza San Marco, and finally don't miss a visit to Scala Contarini del Bovolo. On the 19th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of St. Anthony, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Scrovegni Chapel, wander the streets of Campo del Ghetto, wander the streets of Cannaregio, then explore the activities along Canal Grande, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari.
