Veneto is a region in north-eastern Italy, with its capital in Venice. It was an independent republic until the invasion of Napoleon in 1797.


It is composed of 7 provinces:


  • 1 Venice - with St. Mark's Square, the Great Lagoon, the gondolas on the Grand Canal, Venice's Carnival together with great architecture, artistic masterpieces, particular narrow streets, the Biennale, the Marine Republic, but Veneto is not only Venice.
  • 2 Castelfranco Veneto - is a walled city, with its medieval castle still in nearly-perfect condition.
  • 3 Cortina d'Ampezzo - in the province of Belluno, is part of the Veneto as well. A place with spectacular views of the Dolomites where you can relax and walk in summer and go skiing in winter. The Olympic Wintergames in 1956 helped Cortina d'Ampezzo to become a city known anywhere in the world.
  • 4 Padova , the ancient and learned city with its Basilica del Santo that houses the relics of Saint Antonio is one of the major attraction points for millions of pilgrims every year.
  • 5 Rovigo  
  • 6 Verona - The city of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. If you plan to go to Verona you should at least try to get one of the rare tickets for the opera in the Arena.

Get inEdit

Get aroundEdit



Get a map of Venice with the water bus routes. You can see major parts of the city just by getting on and traveling the canals around the major islands.

Just sit in St Marks Square and watch the pigeons, listen to the music, watch the people go by.

The Venetian glass is beautiful.

Be careful about the time of year you go to see Venice. It is under water some times. Planks are put out to walk when the sidewalks are not walkable. If you go the right time of the year, it is a beautiful city and well worth the trip.

Find a website that actually has some information on what to do, not just idle observations and activities that you can do anywhere.

Here is a mildly useful site [1]
