Veneto Guide

The history of the region of Veneto is closely linked to the history of the Marine Republic of Venice that extended its rule over the entire area from the beginning of the 12th century, reaching as far as Brescia and Bergamo on the mainland and as far as Crete and Peloponnese in the Mediterranean. During the period of the Serenissima, many wonderful cities of art sprung up and trade to the Far East was consolidated as a prime source of wealth. This economic success also helped to give rise to an intense artistic and cultural activity in the area, that has left permanent marks on the Region’s culture.

Art and culture
Wonderful, sunny, wealthy, lively yet quiet and intimate: this is how the cities of art in the Veneto region are seen in a traveler’s eyes, seducing and winning over lovers of art, history and architecture.
Venice is the most splendid, a fantastic open-air museum with its endless treasures and priceless beauty, symbolized by Piazza San Marco, “the most beautiful sitting room in the world”.
Asolo is about 30 kilometers from Venice. It is a small town full of history and culture standing on the hills near Montebelluna. Treviso, a medieval town that runs alongside the Sile river, stands at about the same distance. Padua, the city of Giotto and Saint Anthony, is on the other side of Venice. It has a very old, famous university. The Riviera del Brenta stands between Venice and Padua. This was the privileged holiday playground of the rich, aristocratic Venetian families who had their famous villas built there by Palladio in the 18th century, which were then decorated with frescoes by Tiepolo.
Verona is a 30-minute train ride from Padua. This town was the setting for the love story of Romeo and Juliet. The town is also full of remains of the splendor of the Roman Empire and was the birthplace of Andrea Palladio. In fact the town is full of palaces and buildings designed by this famous architect.

Nature and relaxation
The Veneto region offers many opportunities for fun, relaxation and learning for the traveler. In addition to its wonderful cities of art, the region also has vastly differing landscapes from a nature point of view: it has about 200 km of coastline looking out onto the Adriatic Sea with its wonderful fine golden, sandy beaches. It has mountains, a large area of plains surrounded by hills, the eastern side of Lake Garda, thermal spas and Italy’s two longest rivers: the Po and the Adige.
On the Adriatic Coast the most popular resort in the summer is Lido di Jesolo, a lively town with lots of accommodation and facilities to offer its guests.
Veneto can also offer the stunning Dolomite range of mountains. The highest peak, at 3342 meters, is the Marmolada. Cortina the famous ski resort for international glitterati, also known as the “pearl of the Dolomites”, lies in this area.
Sea and mountains for relaxation and for getting in touch with nature, and thermal spas for rediscovering one’s own psycho-physical well-being: there are thermal spas with rich, curing waters at Abano Terme and Montegrotto, in the province of Padua, or rather in the natural park of Colli Euganei.

Food and Wine
Veneto cooking is marked by the variety of recipes made with vegetables grown in the region fish and meat. All simple ingredients, with rich flavors closely linked to the seasons. These are the essentials points of this region’s cooking.
Each town has its own traditional dishes. There are the famous sardee in saor in Venice, Treviso’s recipes based on its own radicchio, roasted capon in Padua, zuppa scaligera in Verona, baccalà alla vicentina in Vicenza and many more too. Veneto’s wine deserve a whole section of their own, especially the ones made in the Trevigiano and Veronese areas. The Strada del Prosecco route that links the borough of Conegliano to Valdobbiadene is near Treviso: this route is 33 km long. It winds through the Treviso hills, with wineries, wine cellars and typical trattorias along the way. Prosecco in the Treviso area and full-bodied red wines in the Verona area: the province of Verona is famous for its Valpolicella and for its precious Amarone, which is considered to be the Barolo of the north east. Last but not least on this journey through the Veneto region’s food and wine we must remember the pretty town of Bassano, where the famous Grappa di Bassano is made.
