Hello fellow travelers!
My husband and I may find ourselves in Venice for 7 days in September. I have been to Venice before, but he hasn't so we'd like to spend a few days exploring the city, but we are wondering what types of side trips could we take from Venice out to the country. We generally enjoy small towns more than big cities, and we love nature - hiking, admiring beautiful natural scenery, being active, etc.
Any recommendations where we should venture? I know there are so many options and some even in places like Slovenia or Croatia, which aren't too far, so we are a bit overwhelmed with choices and would love some input.
