Veneto is located in the North-East of Italy and it is bordered by Friuli Venezia Giulia, Trentino Alto Adige, Lombardy, Emilia Romagna and Austria.
The region capital is the hugely popular Venice, while the other provinces are: Belluno, Padova, Rovigo, Treviso, Verona and Vicenza.
Veneto boasts an exceptional historical heritage like the Venetian Villas, ancient palaces and historical houses.
Veneto recalls Venice, the most romantic city in the world, seat of the well-known Casino and the Venice Film Festival (september). But there is a lot more to discover: the dynamic Padova, Vicenza and the Palladiane Villas, Verona with Romeo and Juliet’s balcony and Arena di Verona amphitheatre and Cortina d’Ampezzo, the great pearl of the Dolomites.
Natural beauties are countless: starting from eastern Dolomites (UNESCO), to Garda Lake which is the biggest of Italy, to the Altopiano di Asiago (Asiago plateau) which is a charming location where jams and cheese are produced and exported all over the world.
In the eastern Dolomites stays the Marmolada, the highest peak in Veneto (3343 mt).The plain is crossed by rivers Po, Adige, Brenta, Piave, Livenza and Tagliamento and there are some hills: Colli Euganei and Colli Berici. Between the Po delta and the mouth of Tagliamento, the Adriatic coast is defined by lidos and lagoons: the most famous is of course the Venice Lagoon.
Beside skiing, sport addicted may perform: curling, ice-skating and ice-hockey in Stadio del Ghiaccio of Cortina (ice stadium); windsurfing, kitesurfing and fishing in Garda Lake; canoeing in the river Po and lots of sailing regattas are performed in Venice Lagoon.
