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 and Peschiera del Garda, Torri del Benaco and other tourist destinations. Long, sandy beaches alternate with well-known resorts such as Jesolo, Bibione, Cavallino 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. And not to be forgotten are the small villages of Arquà Petrarca, Monselice, Asolo and Bassano del Grappa that bring together the most typical aspects of this diverse and varied region.
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.

San Vito di Cadore, is a mountain town in the northern part of the Veneto region, not far from Venice, nestling at the foot of majestic peaks in a broad green valley in the heart of the Belluno Dolomites.
San Vito is located 1011 metres above sea level, just 11km from Cortina d’Ampezzo, making it the ideal jumping-off point for challenging routes for expert climbers and gentler strolls for those who prefer to enjoy their mountain views from lower down.
The luxuriant verdant valley in which it is located takes its name from the mountain stream that crosses it, the Boite, surrounded by dense pinewoods, with delightful footpaths snaking through them, ideal for pleasant, undemanding strolls and daily walks with all the family. The area is liberally sprinkled with restaurants and mountain refuges offering plenty of opportunities to sample the delicious local cuisine and nourish both body and soul. Mountain biking fans have plenty of trails to choose from, with breath-taking views, linking with all the neighbourhoods of the Cadore Valley and also heading off toward many other Dolomite destinations.
