Venice

Visitors drawn by the city's iconic canals will find troves of things to do in Venice, in and out of a gondola. You'll find many different ways to experience Canal Grande, the city's major transportation corridor flanked by buildings erected between the 13th and 18th centuries. Basilica di San Marco's giant arches, steeples, and horse statues remain outstanding examples of Byzantine architecture in Italy--they're worth a look even if you're not an architecture buff. Don't forget to give Venusian cuisine a taste for a chance to enjoy some amazing seafood specialties, such as vermicelli with black squid ink.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
