Italy - Venice & the Veneto (Chapter)
This is the Venice & the Veneto chapter from Lonely Planet’s Italy guidebook.
Gondoliers call ‘Ooooooeeee!’ round canal bends, nostrils flare at fresh espresso wafting from 250-year-old cafes, mouths water at cascades of purple artichokes on Rialto market stalls, and everywhere – constantly – water gently laps at your feet.
- 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
- restaurants & accommodation
- shout ‘Brava!’ for opera diva encores at Verona’s outdoor Roman Arena
Coverage includes: Venice, around the Veneto, Brenta Riviera, Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Verona’s wine country and Dolomites.
