Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
On the 13th (Fri), get to know the fascinating history of St. Mark's Square, take in the views from Ponte dei Sospiri, admire the striking features of Doges' Palace, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, then contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, and finally snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto.

Perth, Australia to Venice is an approximately 27-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Australian Western Standard Time (AWST) to Central European Time (CET) is minus 7 hours. When traveling from Perth in October, plan for slightly colder days in Venice, with highs around 21°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) early enough to catch the train to Florence.
