Venice and the Veneto/Eastern Lakes
Magical Venice, Verona the City of Love, Lake Garda Valpolicella, and Palladian mansions are just some of the sights in this region that once was the center of western commerce for centuries. Everywhere you go you will see influences from all over the world in the art, the architecture and the food.
Italy’s floating city of Venice, built on the lagoons of the northeastern coast, is dedicated to beauty and revelry due to its riches obtained during its dominance of eastern/western trade routes hundreds of years ago.
The venerable city of Verona and Padua are lovely cities and a great jumping off point to enjoy Venice, the Amarone wine region, the Palladian villas or Lake Garda. Or if you want the perfect place to pop the question, a Valentine’s Day trip to celebrate Festa Degli Innamorati is a two-day festival for lovers.
