A beautiful region that is very often reduced only to Venice itself. But it is not right, even if Venice is really worth to visit and offers many sights and art treasures in addition to the romantic atmosphere that you will definitely discover at each visit you make. This region offers beautiful mountain panoramas in north which makes this part a paradise for mountain tourism and winter sports, east part of Lake Garda in its west, and also many renowned cities throughout the region (Padova, Verona, Vicenza and others). The coast of Adriatic sea, thanks to its sandy gradual entry, is ideal place for holidays especially for families with children. Local cuisine is excellent in risotto, fish and seafood, often with exotic ingredients such as pine seeds, a typical local raw material is radicchio (bitter red salad that tastes delicious in risotto). Veneto is also famous for typical Italian dessert called tiramisu. If you love wine, this region is the right one for you – it excels in growing especially French and German varieties – Merlot, Cabernet, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and naturally Italian ones around Verona – Soave, Bardolino. Other specialities of the wine products are Prosecco and grape brandy Grappa.
