The once powerful Venetian state still makes its presence felt all over Italy but nowhere more so than in this region, known as the Veneto. The region includes the Dolomites and the university town of Padua. Verona hosts an annual opera festival in its glorious 1st century Roman Arena, as well as being home to literature’s most famous lovers. Visitors can leave their own love notes at Juliet’s balcony. There is also the faded elegance of Trieste and the bilingual province of the Trentino, where German and Italian are spoken side by side. Venice, the only city in the world to be built entirely on water, lies across 117 islets. Built in a lagoon, the city exerted a powerful influence across the world for centuries as a foremost centre for trade. Venice still captures the imagination, with its unique atmosphere inspiring literature, art and film. Sights such as St Mark’s Square, the Grand Canal and the Rialto bridge as well as the Doge’s Palace and omnipresent gondolas make this city a singular experience.
