Description

Veneto – Thanks to Venice, capital city of the region – it is the first in Italy and among the first destinations in Europe in number of visitors: the reasons to visit the Veneto region are not limited to its extraordinary city on the water. Veneto holds art cities and small historic hamlets, nature oasis and mountains, fortified citadels, noble villas and holiday resorts by the sea and the lake.

The Palladian-Villas: built around the mid-16th century, scattered in the province of Vicenza, Padua, Treviso and Rovigo, they are a key part of Palladio`s legacy.

Vicenza, a city that you should experience down to the smallest detail and that you can discover from alley to alley. There are two criteria according to which Vicenza was inscribed on UNESCO‘s World Heritage List in 1994: the contributions to the history of art by Palladio and the perfect integration of architecture and urban planning, a reference model for all of modern and contemporary Europe.
