Veneto is situated in the north-eastern Italian region of Italy, bordering the Dolomite Mountains and the Adriatic Sea.
Once part of the Venetian Republic for over 1000 years during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Venice, the regional capital is famed for its canals and its annual Carnival celebrations.
Veneto stretches from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea. Right on the Venetian lagoon stands Venice, visited by millions of tourists each year.
The eastern shore of Lake Garda and Peschiera del Garda is well worth a visit. Jesolo, Bibione, Cavallino an Caorle are also popular resorts which boast spectacular settings and a rich cultural heritage.
If you want to explore the regions outside of Venice, visit the villages of Arqua Petrarca, Monselice or Bassano del Grappa which offer beautiful landscapes away from the tourist resorts.
The gentle slopes of the Euganean Hills offer the therapeutic spas of Abano, Montegrotto and Teolo.
