Veneto & Venice

The region of Veneto has Venice (Venezia) at its famous centre. 
A complex network of waterways with 117 islands,  more than 400 bridges over its 150 canals, Venice is as beautiful as it is unique. Instead of main streets you will find main canals, insteads of cars, you will find gondalas and boats.
Venice conjures romantic canal scenes with serenading gondoliers, graceful bridges, magnificent architecture and art treasures around every corner. It is the most unique city in the world and little has changed in its layout for over 700 years.

Stay in Venice for 2 or 3 nights, lose yourself in the maze of narrow laneways and canal streets and take in the magificent Piazzo san Marco, Basilica and Doge’s Palace in the city centre. Take a day trip to Murano, famous for its glass blowing, or see the brightly coloured buildings of Burano, known for its lace making.

Highlights of the Veneto region include Verona, forever home to star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliette; Vicenza and Venezia, part of the UNESCO World Heritage list;  Padua, with its elegant city centre; "the painted city" of Treviso; and Belluno, the entrance way to the magical world of the Dolomites. 

A lesser known Veneto, made up of medieval villages, walled towns, places of spirituality, small historical centres, archaeological sites and rich art treasures, all waiting to be discovered…
