Italy - Venice & the Veneto (Chapter)
This is the Venice & the Veneto chapter from Lonely Planet’s Italy guidebook.
Pinch yourself, and you might expect to awaken from this dreamscape of pink palaces, teal waters and golden domes. Instead you’re in Venice, and all five senses never felt so alert. Scan the Veneto coastline, and you might spot signs of modern life: beach resorts, malls and traffic.
- join the collective gasp at the golden mosaic domes of Venice’s Basilica di San Marco
- compare Titian’s radiant reds and Tintoretto’s lightning-strike brushstrokes at Venice’s I Frari and Scuola Grande di San Rocco
- flee the crowds and escape to Lido beaches and remote, outer islands aboard a traditional bragozzo
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Venice, Around the Veneto, Brenta Riviera, Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Verona’s Wine Country, Soave, Valpolicella, Prosecco Country, Veneto Dolomites, Belluno and Cortina d’Ampezzo.
