The delightfully diverse region of Veneto occupies northeastern part of Italy. It comprises the provinces of Belluno, Padova, Rovigo, Treviso, Venezia, Verona, and Vicenza. Veneto borders with Trentino-Alto Adige region to the north; Emilia-Romagna to the south; Lombardy to the west and Austria to the north-east.

The northern limit of the region is riddled with mountains including Dolomites (rose-tinted rocky mountains) and the Carnic Alps. Yet, there is much more to Veneto’s scenery. Besides the breathtaking mountains, it dazzles you with hills, forests, plains, marshlands, sandy beaches, and its legendary Venetian lagoon. There, right in the midst of the lagoon, stands Venice. Also known as the Floating City, it is the capital of Veneto as well as one of the most imposing cities in the world.

Venice, thanks to its opulent history, priceless architectural heritage, Carnival, Murano glass, and Burano lace, is the highlight of Veneto. Built on water, it connects to the mainland by a rail as well as a road bridge. Consequently, you can explore it on foot walking through its quaint narrow streets and bridges or on water, riding a typical Venetian gondola or a modern motorboat.

However, looking beyond the golden glow of Venice, you will discover that the whole of Veneto boasts historic, artistic, and natural gems. Other main cities include the romantic, Verona (made famous by the Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet), historic Padua, rich Vicenza or Treviso with ancient canals of its own.
