Veneto

Veneto – The Veneto province in north-east Italy on the Adriatic Coast is a tourist magnet. A major wine-growing region (big names include Soave whites, Valpolicella reds and the fizzy Italian version of champagne, Prosecco), it boasts several major tourist destinations.
Key sights are La Serenissima aka Venice; Verona where Romeo wooed Juliet; Vicenza, where the influential architect Palladio honed his skills; Padua, rich with a cycle of Giotto frescoes and Chioggia, a mini-Venice without the crowds. Elegant Palladian villas dot the vine-striped landscape while the snow-covered Alpine peaks are reflected in the calm waters of Lake Garda, surrounded by lemon and olive groves.
