Informazioni turistiche Veneto
Veneto is made up of seven provinces, all rich in history, culture and important architectural works. Belluno: also known as ‘Little Venice in the mountains’. Padova situated on the banks of the River Bacchiglione, just a few kilometres from Brenta and Colli Euganei, which has always been an important point of cultural reference due to its university (founded in 1222) and is the destination of thousands of pilgrims who every year come to pray to Saint Anthony. Rovigo is located between the River Po and the River Adige. It is considered to be one of the most fertile plains in Italy.
Treviso is set on the banks of the river Sile and brings Venice to mind because of its numerous canals. Its is characterized by colonnaded alleys and lovely medieval topography.
Verona has mainly medieval features, but where it is possible to look down on the city from a height, a Roman urban structure can still be seen. The Roman remains are a must for tourist: the Arena, the Arco dei Gavi, the Ponte Pietra, the Porta dei Borsari, the Porta dei Leoni and the Teatro Romano.
The Arena, that was built over 1900 years ago, has become the most famous outdoor theatre on the international scene.
Vicenza is also known as the city of Palladian buildings. The most important civic buildings designed by the great architect are: the Loggia del Capitanio, Palazzo Barbaran da Porto, Palazzo Chiericati and the Loggetta Palladiana at the Salvi Gardens, an elegant construction dating back to 1592. The unrivalled masterpiece is the wooden Teatro Olimpico, designed by Palladino for the Olimpica Academy.
Of course we can not leave out the spectacular Venice with its canals, bridges, museums and buildings, loved by all who visit. The water that is present in every nook and cranny of this city, the water buses, the motor boats, the rowing boats and naturally the gondolas all make Venice a thoroughly unique city. Two Venetian events are famous worldwide: the spectacular Venice carnival that dates back to the tenth century and the historical regatta which is a procession of boats that have made history it the city.
Every aspect of tourism is catered for in this region; in the summer visitors flock towards the beaches of Bibione, Eraclea, Jesolo, Lake Garda and in the winter towards Cortina in the Dolomites.
