Art and history – an unforgettable journey to Veneto
The history of Venice and the Veneto region reads impressively. Even in the Middle Ages, the city of Venice rose to great power. While most cities in Veneto voluntarily joined them Venetian empire, Padua and Verona had to be conquered first. The rise of Venice to a great naval power and its influence throughout the Mediterranean gave the region – in addition to the legacy of the Romans – many important art treasures and achievements, which can still be admired in the whole county. Two of the most famous Venetians, Marco Polo and Giacomo Casanova, conquered the world and its women with their voyages and charm.
