Venice

— 2 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.
Bring the kids along to Canal Grande and Centro Storico di Venezia. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Dorsoduro and Torre dell'Orologio. Next up on the itinerary: admire the striking features of Doge's Palace, take a stroll through Cannaregio, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Giorgio Maggiore, and make a trip to Basilica di San Marco.
