Singing gondoliers in striped shirts paddle their boats through the narrow canals as wide-eyed tourists snap picture after picture. The pale blue lagoon water reflects the pinks and yellows of the palazzos. Welcome to Venice, the capital of the region Veneto. But the region of Veneto is far more than just the city of Venice. On the mainland, you'll find charming Italian villages with cosy holiday homes and villas. True romantics will jump at the chance to visit fair Verona, home of literature's most famous star-cross'd lovers: Romeo and Juliet. Book a holiday apartment with a balcony and act out the scene for yourself – the Veronese are used to it. There are even luxury ski resort destinations in the Alpine region of Cortina d'Ampezzo. So take the chance to feel like a movie star from L.A, California!
In the city of Vicenza, you'll find the Palladian Villas, a cluster of buildings designed by the architect Andrea Palladio and now protected as an UNESCO World Heritage site. These villas were designed and built for Italy's richest families – rent a Veneto holiday villa or a holiday rental Veneto for yourself and live like the nobles of years past. If you're looking for a bit more adventure, visit nearby Spluga della Preta in Verona, the deepest cave in Italy. Or head up into the Alpine foothills of Veneto for some winter sports such as skiing and dog-sledding or mountain-climbing - just like in Ordino in Andorra, another southern ski paradise. In the summer, the sandy beaches along the long coastline of Veneto and the Venetian lagoon offer prime opportunities for swimming, sunbathing.
