Veneto is an enchanting region of northern Italy that captivates visitors with its unique blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. From the alpine peaks of the Dolomites to the sandy shores of the Adriatic Sea, Veneto boasts a diverse landscape that offers something for everyone.
But let’s be honest! What truly sets Veneto apart is its rich artistic and cultural heritage. The region is home to one of the world’s most fascinating cities, romantic Venice, with its picturesque canals, iconic gondolas and colorful island villages. The city is built on 118 islands, connected by a network of canals and linked by more than 400 bridges. The city’s unique location and layout have earned it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List and attract millions of visitors every year.
The Dorsoduro, Venice’s cultural district, is a great base to explore the city. With fewer tourists and plenty of locals, Dorsoduro feels like what Venice “should” be: relaxing, beautiful and full of hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Although Venice is a year-round destination, in the month of February, during the renowned Carnival celebration, the streets and squares of Venice fill up with over 50,000 people who come from all over the world to witness flying angels and masked characters who seem to have come straight out of a Fellini’s movie.
Veneto also offers a delicious cuisine and fine wines, with local specialties ranging from seafood dishes to hearty meat stews, accompanied by a glass of Prosecco or Amarone. Whether you come to explore the historic wonders of Venice or journey into the mountains for adventure, Veneto is a treasure trove of experiences that will leave you inspired and enchanted.
