For your spring holidays in Italy, opt for the Veneto region: art, entertainment and breathtaking scenery encompassing the golden beaches of the Adriatic, great cities of art and the magical peaks of the Dolomites!


Easter breaks to Venice

  • If you are coming to Venice for the first time, you cannot miss the sights that have made it famous throughout the world! St Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and gondolas are undoubtedly the icons of the Serenissima, as well as its unique setting with no match elsewhere in the world, to be relished strictly on foot during a pleasant walk through popular places as well as less-known ones.
  • If it is not your first time in Venice and you have already seen its most famous attractions, space for imagination... Have you already visited the islands of the lagoon by boat? And the Lido of Venice by bike? Sticking to the historical center, there are countless activities that can make your stay in the city a truly unforgettable experience. Thematic tours, rowing lessons, guided tours to discover places not usually included in the classic tourist routes, climbing the Scala del Bovolo, visiting the Querini Stampalia Foundation or other Venice museums, planning a private visit of Venice with a local guide and customizing it according to your needs... it is difficult to make a complete list of the innumerable choices that Venice offers its visitors! We have selected the best ones: take a look at our Tour and Activities in Venice and you will get the full picture, but don't feel overwhelmed by the glut of choices! Using the filters on the left you can customize the search according to your needs!


Spring breaks in Verona

  • But there is more to Verona than the Arena and Romeo and Juliet ... As with Venice, here too we have selected for you the best experiences in Verona, both in the historical center and in the splendid nearby areas, such as Valpolicella and Lake Garda: food and wine, gametour, walks and bike rides will make you appreciate the soul of this ancient and equally picturesque city!
  • Between Verona and Lake Garda is also the most famous theme park in Italy ... Why not spend Easter at Gardaland? The famous amusement park is open both at Easter and Easter Monday, from 10.00 to 18.00, but also on April 25th and May 1st, but keep in mind that these dates will be very popular: buy your tickets online and save wasting time queuing at the ticket office!


Besides Venice and Verona, among the destinations for a short spring break in Italy in 2019, Padua and Vicenza should not be left out:

  • Vicenza, on the other hand, is almost synonymous with Andrea Palladio ... Do you know that the work of this brilliant architect greatly influenced the development of this city? Find it all out with one of our experiences in Vicenza, including villas, fun and a nice ride!


Pack your bags and get ready to go! If you still don't believe it, come and see: Easter, April 25th or May 1st, Veneto is the ideal destination for your spring break in Italy in 2019!
