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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Giudecca, San Lazzaro degli Armeni and Torcello Island. The adventure continues: explore the activities along Canal Grande, take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, don't miss a visit to Piazza San Marco, and admire the landmark architecture of Basilica di San Marco.

For maps, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Venice day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Venice Marco Polo Airport, Treviso-Sant'Angelo Airport and Trieste–Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to catch the ferry to Murano.
