Of course Veneto means Venezia, a case of stones and outstanding art, a history of thousands of years contained in the huge square in front of San Marco cathedral, the dazzling charm of the lagoon and the display of the palaces that face the Big Channell.
And “Veneto” also means Vicenza – with the amazing works of art by Andrea Palladio dating back to the XVIth century – or the series of extraordinary historical buildings spread along the Brenta river that connects the lagoon to Padoa or the fairy forest of Cansiglio, the learned Padoa of universities, the gentle and charming Treviso and Verona, the very noble town belonging to Della Scala family. Then the magnificent mountains of Cortina d’Ampezzo valley, of Marmolada, Falcade and Civetta and also the dolomites sand of Jesolo, Caorle, Bibione and Rosolina Mare.

In Chioggia the atmosphere is the one of Venice in a small scale while Cortina is the Queen of snow with its territory dedicated to sport activities, as well as the Asiago tableland with its seven villages that give travelers the change to travel in the past: geologic features, traditions and folklore are an unusual and charming mix: the inhabitants of this region come down from a number of Northern peoples that settled in this area in the Middle Ages.

Land and water meet in the Po river’s delta, a magic and enchanting river where the light beats across the reeds and is reflected on the water. And water once again with the coast of the olive trees along the Lake Garda, fifty kilometres of olive trees that shine in the sun, a landscape featured by the light and the Mediterranean climate, a succession of small villages, fortresses, sand and inlets. In the castle of Malcesine, among the different exhibition areas, there is also the Goethe Library where more than two-hundred books by this author are kept, the legend wants that he landed there in a stormy night. In the same place, a number of sketches that Goethe drew during his stay on the Lake Garda are exhibited.

From the culture you can jump to entertainment: in fact this area contains the most of Italian amusement parks. Some names? Gardaland, Parco Natura Viva (nature park) and Caneva World, Movieland Studios, Parco Cavour, Acqua Paradise and Parco Giardino Sigurtà.
