Italy Veneto 

A Guide to Veneto

For over eleven hundred years Venice governed the Adriatic sea with Veneto being an indispensable part of its territory. Therefore, until recently, when one thought of Veneto one immediately thought of Venice.

Today, Veneto has established its own unique identity and offers genuine open hospitality to tourists eager to discover the beautiful treasures of the region; from the magnificent Dolomites with Cortina d’Ampezzo reigning majestically with its exquisite ski slopes and chic city centre - a haunt for celebrities - to the stylish, fashionable Palladian villas of Vicenza.

Then there is Verona, the city where Montecchi, Capuleti, Romeo and Juliet come alive in Shakespeare’s incredible masterpieces. A memorable evening can be had by all at the majestic arena which hosts classical concerts and modern music events.

Veneto also boasts other splendid cities like Treviso, Padova, Chioggia, and Mestre, as well as the magnificent Po delta. The commercial relations which the region has developed over the centuries has meant that a variety of communities of different cultural backgrounds are present in the area.
