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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Piazza San Marco and Centro Storico di Venezia. Step out of the city life by going to Canal Grande and Giudecca. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Giorgio Maggiore, take a stroll through Cannaregio, admire the landmark architecture of Venetian Arsenal, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
