The Veneto Region in north-east of Italy, which lies on the Adriatic Coast plays home to some of the most famous and visited cities in the world.

Aside from the cities such as Venice, Verona, Vincenza and others, the province is also a  major wine-growing region (big names include Soave whites, Valpolicella reds and the fizzy Italian version of champagne, Prosecco).

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-stripped landscape while the snow-covered Alpine peaks are reflected in the calm waters of Lake Garda, surrounded by lemon and olive groves.

Take time out to sample regional specialties including white asparagus (grown all over), risotto

 with cuttlefish, linguine alla vongole (clams) and fegato alla Veneziana (liver with onions).

Montasio and Asiago are local cheeses while Treviso is the birthplace of radicchio, a red and white-striped bitter lettuce leaf.

Summers are hot (max. temp. Aug 36C), winters are cold (min. temp. Jan -2C). The best time to visit is spring or autumn for balmy days and fewer crowds.
