On the 1st (Fri), take a stroll through Campo del Ghetto and then contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Ponte dei Sospiri, see the interesting displays at Doge's Palace, appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza San Marco, then admire the striking features of Basilica di San Marco, then snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo.
