Situated in Italy's northeast, Veneto extends from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea, by way of an expansive range of hills and a valley furrowed by rivers, canals and the Po River Delta. The typical scenery of Veneto's coast is the Venetian lagoon, and, right on this very lagoon stands perhaps the most unique city in the entire world - Venice, visited by millions of tourists every year.
Yet all of the Veneto, a region with a thousand different faces, is the custodian of natural, artistic, and traditional treasures.
Veneto expresses an extraordinary variety in its scenery: from the Dolomites, dipped in the crimson shades of the sunset, to the eastern shore of Lake Garda, long, sandy beaches alternate with well-known resorts such as Jesolo and Caorle. In this spectacular natural setting lies a rich cultural heritage that renders the Veneto such a fascinating region, from its cities of art to the magnificent Palladian villas scattered along the Brenta Riviera. Veneto is also an ideal destination for a vacation of comfort and relaxation, thanks to its possession of thermal waters with their valuable therapeutic properties: the gentle slopes of the Euganean Hills are home to the well-equipped facilities of the Euganean Spas: e.g. Abano, Montegrotto and Teolo, where guests can combine treatments and therapies with pleasant excursions out into the surrounding areas.
Venice has been a sought after tourist destination since, well, the moment the islands were colonized. The unique setting of the once great Serenissima Republic, its culture, architecture, history and food, have attracted visitors from all over the world. The greatness of Venice past and present is well documented, but just in case you needed some reasons to visit Venice, the home of the Film Festival and the Architecture Biennale, Swide has 20 things to do, places to see, and foods to try.

Trento is a prosperous, cosmopolitan university town that retains an architectural charm befitting its historical importance. It was here, from 1545 to 1563, that the structure of the Catholic Church was redefined at the Council of Trent. This was the starting point of the Counter-Reformation, which brought half of Europe back to Catholicism.
Today the Piazza del Duomo remains splendid, and its enormous medieval palazzo dominates the city landscape in virtually its original form.

Trieste is a seaport city that serves as the capital city of the Friuli--Venezia Giulia region. This scenic city on the Gulf of Trieste in the Adriatic Sea is mountainous and was once one of the largest cities in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Tourists visiting this area can find lots to do at some of the most well-known sites around the city, which are must-see stops in Trieste. It was Austrian Emperor Charles Vl’s stroke of genius in 1719, in the midst of 500 years of Habsburg rule, to declare Trieste a free port, thus attracting flocks of merchants, that led to this “Mitteleuropean” mix.
