"Veneto is a northeastern Italian region stretching from the Dolomite Mountains to the Adriatic Sea. Venice, its regional capital, is famed for its canals, Gothic architecture and Carnival celebrations. Veneto was part of the powerful Venetian Republic for more than 1,000 years, between the 7th and 18th centuries. Near alpine Lake Garda, medieval Verona is known as the setting of Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet."
Padua is known for Giotto’s Renaissance frescoes at the Scrovegni Chapel, as well as its 16th-century botanical gardens and 13th-century university. Ornate Palladian villas designed by architect Andrea Palladio in the 1500s can be found in Vicenza and throughout the local countryside. Veneto is a major wine-producing area. Renowned styles include the deep red Amarone della Valpolicella and the sparkling white Prosecco. In the summer, Venice’s Lido beaches are popular and Lake Garda has sailing. In the winter, skiing takes place around resorts like upmarket Cortina d’Ampezzo in the sharp-peaked Dolomite Mountains." (Google Travel Guide).
