Venice

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like San Giorgio Maggiore and Prato della Valle. Venture out of the city with trips to Padua (Basilica of St. Anthony & Scrovegni Chapel). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto, contemplate the long history of Ponte dei Sospiri, and get to know the fascinating history of Piazza San Marco.

For traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Venice trip planner.

Toronto, Canada to Venice is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Toronto to Venice due to the time zone difference. May in Venice sees daily highs of 26°C and lows of 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can drive to Florence.
