Venice, Italy

Cruises from Venice depart from spring through fall.

Rising from a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea, the 118 islands of Venice are linked by 200-plus canals and more than 400 bridges. While a gondola ride is a must, don’t miss the walking tours that explore the city’s streets and palazzos. Notable sights include St. Mark’s Basilica and Square, Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Doge’s Palace and hidden districts where merchants once traded silk, spices and other goods. On a boat cruise on the Grand Canal, learn about the churches, villas and other structures that line the waterway, and sample fresh fruit, vegetables and fish during a stroll through the Rialto market. Foodies can enjoy Italian wines and cicchetti, the local version of tapas, on an organized bar crawl. Excursions are available to Murano, the center of Venetian glassmaking.
