The fascinating land of Veneto 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, with its lagoon, its islands and the Grand Canal, skirted by old decorated buildings which recall the splendor of the ancient Maritime Republic. 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.our apartments in Venice ›
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 surrounds Venice: Burano, 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.Tweet our apartments in Venice ›
