Veneto - Dolomites, floodplains and gastronomy
It is Venice that is the obvious crown jewel of the Veneto region, but there is much more to this marvellous part of Italy. Just think of the majestic mountain range of the Dolomites, the dense forests of Cadore, the lush green of the floodplains of the river Po, endless kilometers of Adriatic coastline and not to mention the historic towns.

Veneto - what do see
Verona, scene of the world’s most famous love story, turns centre stage for opera lovers from all over the world once a year. The venerable university town of Padua guards the relics of the holy Antonius and Vicenza boasts the beautiful buildings of the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. You should also not miss visiting the medieval quarters of Treviso, the underrated gateway to Venice. This historic town has a beguiling charm all its own: Renaissance squares, palaces, richly frescoed churches, streets threaded with ancient waterways.
Veneto - gastronomy
In Veneto, you can enjoy the best rice dishes of Italy! Due to the commercial relationship to the east, Veneto imports rice, muscat nut, gloves and cinnamon.
Obviously, fish is one of the main meals in the lagoon city.
If you want to try a traditional dish, you can choose between seppie in tegame (squid), risotto al radicchio rosso (risotto with red chicory) or filetto di manzo al vino (beef filet with vine).
