Venice
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.
Basilica di San Marco and St. Mark's Square are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Doge's Palace and Peggy Guggenheim Collection will appeal to history buffs.
