From the Dolomite mountains to the Adriatic sea, Veneto can satisfy any tourist longing. Its mountains are a winter paradise for skiers with kilometres of cross-country and downhill ski sites. In summer this land seems to be made especially for excursions and hiking across dreamy landscapes. There are also lakes, hot springs, beach resorts and cities that hold incomparable treasures of art and history. Just consider Venice and the unrivalled charm of the "city of water." In Verona the atmosphere is rich and at the same time vivacious and joyful. Padova is a must to visit the Basilica del Santo and the frescoes by Giotto in the Scrovegni castle, as well as the famous Palladian villas. However, Venice also has extraordinary examples of rural tourism attractions. The natural and artistic resources in the region are supported by an excellent wine and food culture: the cuisine is rich with 17 DOP and IGP quality certified products and 15 Wine Roads that recount the territory and its excellence.
