Things to Do in Venice, Italy
Venice, Italy - 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. This is one of the world's most-visited vacation destinations, with endless places to visit and sights to see, so it often feels like the city has more tourists than residents. Despite this, Venice retains its romantic charm, featuring a picturesque setting on a lagoon, exquisite architecture, and priceless works of art. The entire city is a World Heritage site. The absence of cars makes walking around a particularly pleasant experience. The Rialtine Islands, considered the main part of Venice, are small enough that you can walk from one to the other in about an hour--provided you don't get distracted by the city's gondolas, historical buildings, and restaurants.
