About VenetoNo matter what you’re looking for, Veneto has something to offer. From the snow-capped peaks of the Dolomites to the picturesque canals of Venice, the beautiful Veneto region in northeastern Italy is a diverse and awe-inspiring destination. The beaches take centre stage in the summer, the mountains in the winter and the atmospheric cities are prime spots all year round. Whether you're looking for a city break, ski trip, beach getaway or lakeside retreat, Veneto has something to offer. Most visitors make a beeline for the region’s capital, Venice, to soak up the atmosphere of the canals, narrow cobbled streets and historical sites. The romantic city of Verona, famously the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, is not to be missed, nor are the ancient charms of Padova and Vicenza. There are scenic hills, vineyards and traditional villages to explore in the countryside and glamorous ski resorts in the snowy mountains. Meanwhile, the stunning Lake Garda and heavenly beaches offer idyllic spots for ultimate relaxation. Veneto is a popular year-round destination. In the summer, you can unwind on the beaches and soak up the sun as you float dreamily across a lake. In the winter, the mountain chalets are ideal for snuggling up by a roaring fire after a busy day on the slopes.
