    You’ll spend two days exploring Venice, an enchanting city of beauty and intrigue. Discover seductive passageways that lead to secret squares and dramatic Gothic architecture, and sample the famous Venetian cuisine, a plate of baccala mantecato perhaps, or a risotto al nero di seppia. While Venice is famed for its floating city status, there's so much more magic to explore beyond the iconic Grand Canal gondola rides.
