veneto map
The region of Veneto in the northeast of Italy is probably on of the most diverse in all of Italy. It extends from the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the Adriatic Sea over expanses of hills and valleys cut by rivers, canals, and the Po delta. 
On the coast, away from the mountains the typical scenery is the flat lands and the coastal lagoons, and of course, one of the most unique cities’s in the entire world – Venice, and yet there is so much more to Veneto.

The region is one with a thousand different faces; it has dry land, natural sights, artistic people, and strong traditional treasures. It boasts an extraordinary variety of scenery, the Dolomites with the resorts of Marmolada, Mount Civetta, and the Three Peaks of Lavaredo, which are beautiful both summer and winter. There are the eastern shores of Lake Garda with Peschiera del Garda, Torri del Benaco and other tourist destinations, and then there are the long, sandy beaches of resorts such as Jesolo, Bibione, Cavallino, and Caorle. 
Veneto also has a fascinating history. There is everything from the cities of art to the magnificent Palladian villas built along the Brenta Riviera. In contrast, there are the small, typical villages of Asolo, Monselice, Arquà Petrarca, and Bassano del Grappa which showcase a totally different side of the region.
As well as the mountains and the history, Veneto is also an ideal destination for relaxing holidays. Thanks to its thermal waters with their valuable therapeutic properties, the area has many spa hotels and day spas where guests can take the waters. The gentle slopes of the Euganean Hills are where visitors can visit Abano, Montegrotto, and Teolo, which not only offer excellent treatments, but also opportunities for walking and exploring on foot.
Venice, Belluno, Padua, Rovigo, Treviso, Verona, and Vicenza are all provinces of the region, with Verona being famous for its beautiful landscape, green hills, and pleasant beaches.

On the eastern shores of Lake Garda, the province of Verona has small towns with pretty, colourful houses and large ornate villas. This is an exceptionally historic area with castles, towers, hermitages, monasteries, sanctuaries and old Romanesque buildings. To the north lies Lessinia, with its Regional Park, and Mount Baldo which follows the plains of the Po Valley up into the Alpine area, an area perfect for walking and hiking though the beech woods, olive groves, and orchards. This beautiful scenery is why Mount Baldo is called Hortus Europae, or the garden of Italy and Europe, and at its heart, Valpolicella – the wine lands.



Visiting these cities with your beloved one will grant you the most romantic experience of your life.
