Veneto

Those interested in culture and history will get their money's worth in traditional cities such as Verona or Padua. For nature lovers, the spectrum ranges from the beaches of the Adriatic to Lake Garda up to the high alpine area, which in Veneto with the Dolomite summit Marmolada reaches its highest point at 3350 m above sea level.

Attractions in Veneto


Veneto is a region of northern Italy, located precisely in the north-east of the country. Its northern borders are Trentino Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia Giulia and for a small part also Austria. Veneto faces the Adriatic Sea to the east, while it borders Lombardy to the west and Emilia Romagna to the south. The territory is largely flat, becoming sinuous and then mountainous in the area coinciding with the Alps to the north and north-west. Obviously, worthy of note are Lake Garda, which partially defines the border with Lombardy, and the marshy areas of the Po Delta and the Venice Lagoon. Venice alone makes the region one of the most visited in Europe and in the world, but Veneto is not only "La Serenissima", it is a place to discover, which surprises with the beauty of its Euganean and Berici hills, the Asiago plateau and the alpine areas with peaks such as the Marmolada (3343 m). Culturally, Veneto is rich in value, and without mentioning Venice, historic centers such as Padua, Treviso, the fortified medieval city of Cittadella and the romantic Verona are definitely worth a visit. This cultural and historical heritage joins a unique gastronomic offer, capable of making visitors falling in love with wine tastings such as the famous Prosecco and typical dishes that reflect the traditions of the place.
