Here is a list of another top 10 - pick those which sounds intriguing. Just hanging out and having a glass of Prosecco or Spritz Aperol at an outdoor cafe are my 1 through 3, at least ;)

St. Mark's Square-mostly because of its location on the banks of the grand canal, and because of the great number of beautiful, historical monuments.

1. St. Mark's Square - Basilica, Clock Tower

2. Doge's Palace - Secret Itinerary tour

3. San Giorgio Maggiore & bell tower

4. Santa Maria Della Salute & sunset view from Accademia Bridge

5. Opera (http://www.italianticketoffice.it)

Of course, you must take the slow vaporetto and travel the length of the Grand Canal. You could also go to Lido & back if you have the time.

Enjoy!
