Impossible to get bored in the Veneto, a land where all seasons offer every kind of entertainment! Besides, considering the variety of natural environment, art, and cutting-edge facilities and services which the region provides, it could hardly be otherwise. Culture, sport, leisure, relaxation, entertainment, cuisine: everything is here, one only has to decide.
The only type of holiday limited to one particular period of the year is the seaside summer break, though 'seaside' means more than just water: with more than 100 km of beaches, all well-kept and aclean, with day and night time activities provided for, large varieties of sports (kitesurfing, tennis, sailing etc.), and the delicious fish dishes at the heart of maritime cuisine, no wonder that the seaside resorts hold the record for the most foreign visitors.
History and nature, health and beauty, and sport are also well catered for in the mountains and lakes, where the seasons do not so affect the choice of destination. The so-called Riviera degli Olivi along the east coast of Lake Garda host archaeological sites and museums, health spas and centres, and an environment ideal for a host of varied sporting activities: from windsurfing, hangliding, horseriding and hiking in summer, to the winter skiing on Monte Baldo with its lake views. Everything enhanced with the sumptuous local cuisine and optimum wine. Or maybe a family day out at the most famous amusement park Gardaland.
The mountains of the Veneto, from the Dolomites to the Lessinia provide ample facilities for winter sports lovers, both downhill and cross-country skiing, as well as skating, whilst the summer months give a wide scope of activities such as exploring the countryside by foot, horse or mountain bike, rafting, fishing, and worthy cultural events.
In addition the thermal spas in the area let one relax, and the National Parks (from the Po Delta to the Dolomites) offer a spectacular place to escape and plunge into the natural beauty of the countryside.
Not forgetting the eternal historical cities such as Venice and Verona, where the march of time boasts monuments from each step, and where one can literally live in a masterpiece: the museums, theatres, churches and cathedrals, ancient libraries, and the cinema, music and art festivals and exhibitions famed throughout the world.
Why wait any longer? The Veneto is waiting!
