Destinations

Veneto

The region of Veneto is well known for the wonderful city of Venice but also within the bounds are the fascinating destinations of Verona, Padua, Vicenza and Lake Garda. For a substantial period of time the region was under the control of the powerful Venetian Republic and the emblem of Venice, a winged lion, is still seen all around the area.

The Veneto is bursting with history and culture and there is certainly no shortage of places to visit from Venice with her canals, bridge and an abundance of sights to the Roman ruins of Verona as well as the lesser known towns of Treviso, which also has a canal network, Padua, for art historians with the presence of Giotti's frescoes and those keen on archictecture and Vicenza. During the era of the Venetian Republic, rich city dwellers employed the very finest architects, the best know being Andrea Pallladini, to construct the most elegant villas in the countryside. Vicenza is a great place to see some of his Palladian Villas.
