Cheap flights to Veneto

Veneto, or Venezia Euganea, is one of the 20 regions of Italy. Previously, it was an independent state under the Republic of Venice, but a series of wars made it an annex of the Austrian empire, and thereafter, ceded to the Kingdom of Italy in 1866. Even after a lot of changes and power transfers, the region has still retained its charm and personality – complete with the audacity, the vibe, and the creativity. The capital, Venice, is the primary reason as to why visitors check on the region, and that is perfectly understandable – the city is a beauty that is beyond compare. But it won't hurt to wander around and away from Venice and visit the other towns and cities in the region as well.

What to see & do

Strategically divided into seven provinces, the region of Veneto has so much to offer to tourists even outside its capital city, Venice. Living up to its reputation of being a 'region with a thousand faces', Veneto will completely surprise each and every visitor with an abundance of destinations, discoveries, culinary exploits, and activities.

Belluno – Found at the heart of Valbelluna and surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Dolomites, this city has charmed the Celts who have called it “Belo-dunums” shining hill. The clear light of Belluno has beguiled many – with the city being called and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Architecturally, the city is inspired by Gothic influences infused to the Venetian ways and means creating a rather unique effect, while artistically it is the birthplace of various geniuses namely Andrea Brustolon, Andrea Schiavone, and Sebastiano Ricci who have contributed to both art and architecture with their Baroque pieces. Places to visit here include the Old City, where ancient fountains of beauty can be found, the Piazza del Duomo, the Rector's Palace, the Palace of Justice, and the Red Palace. Moreover, exhibitions can be seen inside the churches, while the “Death of St. Francis” and the “Crucifixion” can also be found here.

Padua (Padova) – A fascinating mix of the past and present, ancient history, tradition, and art, Padua is basking with beauty like no other. The recently restored Palazzo della Ragione and the Loggia of Carrara proves the ancient splendour of the Lordship of Carrara, while the Capella degli Scrovegni or the Scrovegni Chapel, the Churches of St. Anthony, St. Justina, and the Cathedral shows the full effect of Catholicism in Italy, along with the beautiful frescoes created and commissioned from Giotto, and the sculptures of Donatello. Moreover, Padua is also the city that gave birth to the first university botanical garden in Europe, as well as the development of science in Bo Palace. Presently, the city is still clinging to its dynamic and artsy culture, with lively markets, streets, and fine restaurants. Old taverns sit together with swank and trendy clubs, along with parks filled with students, locals, and tourists just enjoying the beauty of the city.

Rovigo – Rovigo is primarily known as the site of Tetro Sociale built in 1819, building a characteristic that is more inclined to performances and music. The town is also known as the site of the Francesco Vanezza music conservatory, and is the venue for the career beginnings of Tullio Serafin, Beniamino Gigli, and Renata Tebaldi. Moreover, the town which is nestled at the heart of the Polesine is in fact, caressed by the sea breeze coming from the Po Delta, carrying an air of sophistication without being too flashy – the perfect description of the town.

Treviso – Treviso is best described as a city of discoveries, due to the fact that it is best enjoyed slowly and intricately. Breathe into the quiet city life, and simply enjoy the serene sights playing around the rivers of Sile and Cagnan. Arcaded houses with beautiful painted facades reflect the channel Buranelli and the Island of the Fish, which was created in the river Cagnan to accommodate the fish market. Other remarkable monuments in the area are the Cathedral, the Chapel Malchiostro which is the home of the frescoes created by Pordenone, and the altar piece of the Annunciation by Titian, the St. Catherine of the Servants of Mary, the Dominican church of St. Nicolas, and the House of Cararresi which has hosted prestigious international exhibitions in the recent years. If lucky, tourists may also enjoy the biggest festival in Treviso which is the International Guitar Festival of Two Cities, and the Treviso Marathon.

Venice – The crowning glory of Veneto, Venice has built its reputation as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Elegance, sophistication, opulence, and uniqueness has all come alive in the said capital, and much has been said about it that even explorer Marco Polo cannot get enough of it. Venice is also one of those cities that mix the modern and the traditional beautifully: art exhibitions on almost every corner of the city, interestingly co-existing with the Venetian Carnival and the International Film Festivals, old architecture so refined that it shows in each and every corner while giving inspiration to the new bloods to create something wonderfully different, paintings, gondola rides on the Grand Canal, and of course, the stars that may be enjoyed while having an exotic oriental cuisine with a touch of European gastronomy.

Verona – William Shakespeare perhaps chose the city of Verona as the setting of his tragic story on the most famous star-crossed lovers Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet deliberately, because the city's hallmark for centuries has always been romance, drama, and fatal family feuding. Verona has flourished in the Middle Ages primarily because of the wrathful Scaligeri clan, who are most interested in the arts as they are interested in tyranny and murder. Their elaborate Gothic tombs, the Arch Scaligere, are just off the Piazza dei Signori. Verona is also the home to one of the most remarkable opera venues, the Roman Arena, and has always been a control centre for certain empires such as the Fascist, Romans, French, and many others.

Vicenza – The city is known for its architecture, and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
