Travel and Culture in Veneto
If you are interested in attending a course in Veneto,
in one of the schools of ours, we would be glad to help you by giving
you some useful information:
WHERE IS VENETO?
Veneto is a region that is situated in northern Italy. It borders with Austria to the North, with Friuli-Venezia Giulia to the North-East, with Lombardy and Trentino Alto-Adige to the West and with Emilia Romagna to the South.
WHAT IS THE TERRITORY LIKE ?
Veneto is a north-eastern region of Italy, washed by the Adriatic
Sea for 200 Km along the coast.
The territory is mostly flat, with only 29% of mountains. The highest peak is Marmolada (3342 mt), in the Dolomites, at the boundary with Trentino Alto-Adige. The other most important mountains in the Dolomites are: Mounts Tofane (3243 mt) and Mount Antelao (3264 mt).
Otherwise, several massifs are present in the foothills of the Alps: the Asiago Plateau, Mount Baldo, Mounts Lessini and Mount Grappa.
Venice is the regional capital of Veneto, but the region includes other provinces: Verona, Rovigo, Belluno, Vicenza, Padova and Treviso.
Moreover, in Veneto there are two of the most important rivers of Italy: the Po (in its final stretch) and the Adige.
Then the eastern part of Lake Garda belongs to Veneto, too.
HOW CAN YOU REACH IT ?
The airports in Veneto are: Marco Polo Airport in Venice and Valerio
Catullo Airport in Verona, with national and international flights.
Travelling over the region by car is not difficult, since the motorway networks connect the regional capital with the other most important towns. Moreover, Veneto is well connected with the rest of Italy too, both through the motorway and the railway networks.
WHAT DOES IT OFFER?
The tourist industry brings in Veneto one of the biggest national
turnover. Every year Venice, with its beauties, welcomes a large
number of tourists from all over the world. Then the region includes
some towns that are rich in culture and history as Verona, Padova,
Vicenza and many others.
Apart from Venice, Veneto can count on the beauty of Lake Garda too, on some seaside resorts as Jesolo and Chioggia and on the uniqueness of the Dolomites. All these elements offer a wide choice of holiday resorts, where tourists can spend their holidays.
We also want to point out the big development of the region in the textile sector, in the paper industry and in the goldsmiths production.
Finally, Veneto boasts a prestigious wine production of very old origins, which nowadays produces a big quantity of excellent DOC wines, among which the Valpolicella, the Gambellara, the Merlot, the Pinot, the Sauvignon and many others.
