A city like no other, Venice is one of the most beautiful places in the world. With historical significance during both the Middle Ages and the Italian Renaissance, Venice's culture is as deep and complex as the system of islands it is built upon.

It would be impossible to visit Venice without taking a boat trip along one of its 177 canals, lined with ornate palaces. The city of Venice has no streets, and traffic comes instead in the form of gondolas and other boats navigating through the scenic canals. The largest of these is the Grand Canal, which bisects the city.

To experience the heart of Venice, visit St. Mark's square, dominated by the sublime Byzantine architecture of St. Mark's Basilica. Tours of the famous building take place daily. Then, spend the day wandering through Venice's romantic streets and discovering the many gelaterias, souvenir shops, local boutiques, and authentic cafes, the most famous of which is Caffe Florian. This legendary cafe has hosted many celebrities over the centuries, and the original 18th-century decor remains as inviting as ever.

Venice's southern-central location in Europe makes it easily accessible from far and wide. The city's primary airport is Venice Marco Polo Airport. Venice also has two main train stations, and direct trains are available from many European cities, even all the way to Munich. In addition, bus services connect Venice to various international destinations, with the added benefit of an eye-level view of the Northern Italian landscapes.

Set among the rolling hills of Tuscany, Siena is the provincial capital in central Italy. Siena has an extensive history, dating to the Etruscan era, although most of the town's growth didn't occur until the Middle Ages. Take a walk up one of the many surrounding hills to gain a birds' eye view of Siena, in many ways identical to how it looked in the medieval period.

The best way to appreciate the town is to embrace the Italian lifestyle, enjoying a coffee and people-watching in the Piazza del Campo. After this, visit the Duomo di Siena to view its Gothic exterior, intricate mosaic floor, and many of the preserved works of Catholic worship that lay inside.

After a long day of exploring, refuel with some mouthwatering local cuisine. Visit any of the authentic Sienese restaurants to try pici, a type of pasta, and make sure to sample at least one of the many famous desserts from the region.

Siena's central location in Italy makes it easy to access from major metropolises like Rome, Paris, or Barcelona. Ampugnano Airport is only 9 kilometers from the city, although Florence and Pisa airports offer more frequent flights with a wider choice of airlines. Frequent trains pass through Siena from several cities in Italy, and two bus lines operate between Florence and Siena.
