has countless natural
and artistic attractions and some not to be missed places.
The first stop of a journey to discover the region is undoubtedly Venice
inscribed on the World Heritage list by UNESCO
its lagoon, its islands and the Grand Canal
by old decorated buildings which recall the splendour of the ancient
Venice, famous for its historic Carnival
, Murano glass
and Burano laces, can be visited on foot, going through the small lanes
called 'calli' and numerous bridges, or by boat, from steamboats to
gondolas, carried by the water to admire unique views and sceneries.
Piazza San Marco
, with its basilica rich in mosaics
and domes, Doge’s Palace, the labyrinth of lanes dotted by shops
and workshops, churches decorated with canvas, sculptures and frescoes,
museums and even the most hidden piazzas, are all unforgettable.

the Venetian lagoon
In the region of Veneto
, in the Adriatic Sea, there
is one of the most evocative places in the world, a priceless treasure:
the Venetian lagoon
In the heart of this precious heritage there is the Serenissima, with
characteristic bridges that surmount the canals with gondolas, the monuments,
the squares, the narrow alleys and the calm water.
Around Venice there is a group of fascinating small islands, where art
and history are combined with old trades and the beauty of the sea.
Sandy beaches washed by the Adriatic Sea characterize the main resorts
which offer the visitors any kind of comfort for their holidays. The
inland is fascinating as well, with many routes into the nature, along
peaceful rivers, passing small towns rich in history and fabulous villas.
A land with exquisite tastes, typical courses and a precious “wine
list”. There are also many opportunities to have fun: outdoor
sports, nightlife in many worldly places and shopping in the typical
artisanal workshops to buy souvenirs. A group of islands surround Venice:
, renowned for the production of laces; Murano
for the glass making; Pellestrina, characterized by sandy dunes and
cane fields; Torcello, one of the oldest human settlement of the area.
In the northern side of the Lagoon there are wonderful natural landscapes,
with beaches with different tones, depending on the sun light, just
like the Dolomites that nourished, through the centuries, this beautiful
coastline. Here it is possible to find some touristic jewels of the
Province of Venice
: Caorle, with its narrows alleys
between pretty coloured houses; Jesolo, core of amusement and nightlife;
Bibione, with the pinewood that reaches the beach; Cavallino, the main
European “open air” touristic destination.
