Venice — 3 nights

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 7th (Mon), take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, then admire the landmark architecture of Basilica di San Marco, then contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: pause for some serene contemplation at Scrovegni Chapel, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of St. Anthony, examine the collection at Doge's Palace, then take in the views from Ponte dei Sospiri, and finally get to know the fascinating history of Piazza San Marco.

In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond.
