This summer, my husband and I decided to spend two days in Venice, Italy and it was such a beautiful adventure. Since Venice is such a small city, no more than two days of a visit is required, and to make your trip easier, I have put together a Two Day-travel guide.
Venice Fun Facts

There are 400+ pedestrian footbridges spanning the canals
