Veneto is a gem of a region in the northeast corner of Italy. Bound on the west by Lake Garda, on the north by the Dolomite Mountains and on the east by the Adriatic Sea, the landscape of the Veneto is rich and varied.
Veneto is known for having its own unique culture and traditions within Italy. This is primarily due to the fact that it was an independent republic for over 1000 years prior to the unification of Italy, and continues to have autonomous governmental powers till this day,
Veneto is today among the wealthiest, most developed and industrialized regions of Italy. Having one of the country's richest historical, natural, artistic, cultural, musical and culinary heritages, it is also the most visited region of Italy, with about 60 million tourists every year.
