Veneto, Italy

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.

The history of the region of Veneto is closely linked to the history of the Maritime 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.

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”.

Treviso, a medieval town that runs alongside the Sile river, stands at about the same distance. Asolo is about 30 kilometers from Treviso. It is a charming small town full of history sitting on the foothills of the Alps.

Padua, the city of Giotto and Saint Anthony, is on the other side of Venice. It has a very old, famous university. It was the birthplace of Andrea Palladio, famous architect whose countless architectural works in Vicenza are the reason why the city is part of the prestigious "World Heritage List" of Unesco.

The Brenta Riviera 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. Vincenza The town is also full of remains of the splendor of the Roman Empire.
