Other places you must visit include Saint Mark's Basilica (photo above), Bridge of Sighs, The Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Doge's Palace, and Teatro la Fenice. Looking for some Venetian grub with views? Eddie recommends Al Scalzi Restaurant and a visit to Ponte Degli Scalzi, also known as "Bridge of the Barefoot Monks".
A quick side trip to the island of Burano is a must! It's known for its colorful homes, delicious seafood and fisherman village vibes. You'll get instagram worthy photos here and enjoy a day away from the (sometimes) busy Venice. Stop by Museo del Merletto for lace making tutorials and grab a gelato in one of the many ice cream shops!
Take the train down to Rome for a history lesson in architecture and Roman times. The balance of Roman ruins and modern architecture makes this city unique. Stop by the Colosseum for a tour of the Eternal City's arena, where Gladiators and Animals fought to the death. From here, visit the Roman Forum, grab more gelato, and walk to the Pantheon to gaze at the enormous ceilings and Roman architecture.
