Veneto, region of Italy
Veneto is located in the north-east of the Italian peninsula and is the first region of Italy for tourist presence. This is mainly due to its rich historical, natural, artistic, cultural, musical and culinary heritages.
Venice, the region's capital, is certainly the best known city ot Veneto, but there are several other art cities of international notoriety, starting from Verona, Padova (Padua), and also Vicenza, known as "the town of Palladio" (a famous Renaissance Architect that highly influenced both British and American architecture).
Veneto touristic appeal stems also from the beauty of its mountains (Cortina and part of the Dolomites are located in Veneto), the seaside and the Garda, the biggest lake ot the country.
