Land contested between the sea and the unique landscapes of the Alps, Veneto is one of the richest regions of Italy in history, with charm, nature, and unique flavors. From romantic Venice, sunsets in the Dolomites, to the most beautiful beaches, the possibilities are truly endless, so a visit to this Italian region will deserve a good time on your part.
Venice is not only the most iconic city of Veneto: its timeless beauty, unchanged for centuries and endowed with an incomparable charm, makes it one of the astonishing places to visit in Italy, if not in the whole world. St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the magic of a gondola ride, or a stroll through the picturesque streets of the historic center. The emotions that this city can provoke in you will be difficult to experience anywhere else.
Built entirely on water, it is a unique city in the world, able to surprise and enchant despite an influx of visitors so high that sometimes, why not, it can be exhausting. Beautiful both during major events, such as the Carnival or the Redentore and in off-season periods, such as the beginning of autumn, this city is truly one of the places to see at least once in a lifetime.
Discovering Venice without visiting the nearby islands would be a real shame. That's why it's worth taking the boat to Murano, the island of glass, and colorful Burano, the small town characterized by colorful houses and lace stores.
If art cities are your thing, you can't miss Verona, the city that Shakespeare made immortal with the turbulent story of Romeo and Juliet. The ancient Arena, the Basilica of San Zeno, the medieval palaces of Piazza Delle Erbe, and the treasures of its characteristic Duomo (cathedral).
Visiting Veneto does not only mean visiting beautiful cities. For nature lovers, the region offers some unforgettable views in Italy: those of the Dolomites (recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site) along with the Pre-Alps, the Lessinia Mountains, and the protected natural areas. For summer hiking and mountain lovers, there are two natural parks in the area. The best known is the Ampezzo Dolomites, or Orientali, which includes the most impressive and spectacular peaks. However, also in the Park of the Belluno Dolomites, you can find trails, natural treasures of great beauty, landscapes, and unspoiled forests.
