In the northeast of Italy between the shores of the Adriatic Sea and the peaks of the Dolomite Mountains you will find the region of Veneto, as diverse as it is beautiful. No holiday in Veneto would be complete without a trip to its capital, Venice, famous for its picturesque streets and its gondola rides. And you should also make time for Verona with its Roman theatre and opera festival, Vicenza (known for its sensational architecture) and the beautiful and vibrant university city of Padua.
Outside the cities, a holiday in Veneto offers natural beauty in abundance. Gorgeous Lake Garda offers beaches, water sports, food and wine not to mention traditional towns with unbeatable views. The UNESCO protected Dolomites are the perfect place to enjoy heavenly scenery as well as an array of year-round outdoor pursuits. And throughout the region there are walled cities and incredible stately palaces to marvel at. A holiday in Veneto has something for everyone.
