Venice! Lose yourself in the echoing streets. Hop a vaporetto and explore the Lagoon islands. Wander beside peaceful canals lined with brightly colored houses. If the weather is fine, pay your respects to the Adriatic from a beach on Lido. And whatever else you do, make time to simply sit and watch the passing scene. Take tea by a canal. Then cross the Lagoon as the late afternoon sun sets the sky afire behind the domes and campanile of Venice.
