A world heritage site for its art and a sporting paradise thanks to its natural variety: the Veneto is a 'natural gym' for all sports at every level, always in complete safety. Here the concept of a holiday is adapted for all its various requirements, from the classic sightseeing itineraries to the fulfilment of the visitors' particular passion.
Each region or geographical area has its own distinct environment and climate, sometimes seasonal, though with evergreen zones playing host to visitors all year round. The only sporting vacation with a seasonal limit is the beach holiday: 100 km of coast offering everything from windsurfing to sailing, kitesurfing to scuba diving, in addition to thermal swimming pools, riding, beach volleyball, tennis courts, football, basketball, volleyball, golf and minigolf.
The same wide choice applies to the lake and mountain areas, and with less influence of the passing of the seasons. From the Riviera degli Olivi with windsurfing and paragliding, with horseriding and trekking (both on foot or by bike) in summer, to ski-ing with the lake view from Monte Baldo during the winter - everything is possible. The mountains of the Veneto, from the Dolomites to Lessinia, offer traditional alpine pastimes such as ski-ing and ice-skating, while the summer turns the areas into places for excursions and trips, on foot, by horse, or mountain bike, with the possibility of rafting and sport fishing. Finally there are the thermal baths for alternating relaxation with all types of sporting activities and excursions, and canoeing on the river Silo or in the southern zones. The Veneto also has the third largest number of golf courses in the whole of Italy, with 16 courses spread throughout the territory, near the sea, in the hills and in the mountains.
