Geographical map of Veneto

From the Dolomites to the sea

With a size of 18,378 km2 and 4.9 million inhabitants, Veneto is one of the largest regions in Italy, in terms of population as well as area. Veneto also has a lot of scenic highlights to offer its visitors. From the highest peaks of the Dolomites to the longest and widest sandy beaches, from the largest lagoons to the most extensive wetlands, Veneto offers an incredible diversity. Veneto is a rich treasure chest, not only culturally and historically, but also because of its scenic charm.

Geographical location of Veneto

With an area of 18.378 km2, Veneto is the eighth largest region in Italy, and with 4.9 million inhabitants it is the fifth most populous. The region of Veneto borders on the Italian regions of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Trentino-Alto Adige, Lombardy and Emilia-Romangna, and in the far north it borders on Austria. Veneto itself is divided into seven provinces: Venice, Verona, Vicenza, Treviso, Rovigo, Padua and Belluno. The largest province by area is Belluno, with 3,678 km2. Padua is the most populous province, with 905,112 inhabitants. The capital of Veneto, Venice, is – along with Verona – one of the best-known cities in the region. The famous lagoon city is also one of the main sights of Italy.

Amazing scenery

Particularly impressive and beautiful in Veneto is the rapidly changing and diverse landscape of the region. It ranges from the Dolomites and the Venetian Alps, through an extensive hilly area, to the large and fertile Po Valley, which is crisscrossed by many rivers. The east coast of the Lake Garda, Italy’s largest and most popular lake, and the 150 km long Adriatic coast, with its numerous lagoons and beautiful beaches, complete the varied landscape. As you can see, Veneto offers something for everyone’s taste.

Skiing, hiking and swimming in one single region

The high mountains and hills of Veneto not only offer a beautiful view, they are also the ideal place for sporting activities. The numerous skiing areas around resorts like Cortina d’Ampezzo attract skiers in winter, while hikers and climbers travel through the Venetian Alps in spring, summer and autumn. Numerous large rivers like the Po, Adige, Brenta, Piave, Livenza, Sile and Tagliamento wind through the Po Valley towards the sea, where they open into several arms in the Adriatic Sea, supplying the numerous lagoons with fresh water. The longest and widest sandy beaches in Veneto are a true paradise for water lovers. The kilometres-long, flat sandy beaches are also the ideal holiday destination for families.
