Sightseeing Veneto Region

Situated in the north-east of Italy, Veneto extends from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea, by way of an expansive range of hills and a valley furrowed by rivers, canals and the Po delta.
The typical scenery of the Veneto coast is the lagoon, and, right on this very lagoon stands a city unique in all the world – Venice, visited by thousands of Italian and foreign tourists every year.
Yet Veneto, a region with a thousand different faces, is the custodian, also on dry land, of natural, artistic, and traditional treasures.
Veneto boasts an extraordinary variety of scenery: the Dolomites, dipped in the crimson shades of the sunset, the eastern side of Lake Garda with Peschiera del Garda, Torri del Benaco and other tourist destinations. Then there are the long, sandy beaches, alternating with well-known resorts such as Jesolo, Bibione, Cavallino and Caorle. In this spectacular natural setting is a rich cultural heritage that makes Veneto a particularly fascinating region, from its cities of art to the magnificent “Palladian villas” scattered along the Brenta Riviera, up to the small villages of Arquà Petrarca, Monselice, Asolo and Bassano del Grappa which bring together the most typical aspects of this many-faceted region.

Veneto is also an ideal destination for a comfortable relaxing holiday , thanks to the thermal waters with their valuable therapeutic properties: the gentle slopes of the Euganean Hills are home to the well-equipped facilities of the Euganean Spas, for example Abano, Montegrotto and Teolo, where you can combine treatments and therapies with pleasant trips out in the surrounding area.

The provinces of the region are: Venice (regional capital), Belluno, Padua, Rovigo, Treviso, Verona and Vicenza.
