Verona and its surroundings
"There is no world without Verona walls,But purgatory, torture, hell itself." (Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, Scene III, Act III)
In fact, just a few miles out of the city there are charming places, ancient villages, and natural landscapes of rare beauty. Lake Garda with its riviera, Valpolicella with its wines and villas, Monte Baldo with its flora, the Lessinia plateau with its caves and stone contrade and then the castles, Renaissance sites, Romanesque parish churches: an area rich in art, nature, tradition and cuisine all to be discovered and appreciated.
Absolutely nothing is missing in terms of nature or culture. There is no historical period or artistic style that has not left its trace somewhere in the Veneto. There is no natural beauty or landscape that is not present for the visitor: lake and mountains, hills and sea, river and forest.
This variety of landscapes, this juxtaposition of nature and culture make the Veneto the main tourist region of Italy.
Venice, the city that drew and continues to draw its reason for being from the water, is just an hour's drive from Verona, unique in the world it terms of its size and type. Piazza San Marco with the Basilica and palazzi, the Arsenal, the Rialto Bridge, and the Ghetto testify to the greatness and vitality of Venetian civilization over the centuries.
In addition to Venice and Verona there are other important cities for art. Vicenza with Palladio's architectural masterpieces, Padua, the city of St. Anthony, and Treviso with its decorated medieval houses.
Landscapes and unique natural environments round out the regional tourism possibilities: the Dolomites, the Euganean Hills, the Po Delta, the Asiago plateau.
