Home of the renowned architect Palladio, Vicenza definitely flies under the radar. With a beautiful historic centre and the oldest opera venue in the world, this hidden gem is perfect for travellers looking for a bit of calm.


Located right next to Slovenia and at an important crossroad between cultures, Trieste is a short journey away from Venice. Looking out over the Adriatic Sea, the sun glinting off of the water has never looked better than when you are in this great city!


A bit further away than the other day trips, Ferrara is definitely worth visiting as it is a World Heritage Site with lots of Renaissance palaces dotted around the city.
