Venice — 2 nights

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 (Thu), take in panoramic vistas at St Mark's Campanile, snap pictures at Ponte dei Sospiri, then don't miss a visit to Piazza San Marco, then examine the collection at Doge's Palace, and finally admire the masterpieces at Peggy Guggenheim Collection. On the 8th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the world behind art at Gallerie dell'Accademia, admire the landmark architecture of Basilica di San Marco, then take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, and finally explore the activities along Canal Grande.

It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond. The country's cities and seaside resorts are cosmopolitan powerhouses with museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, open-air markets, and pedestrian-friendly historic areas.
