The Veneto has it all. Stretching from the western shore of Lake Garda, embracing the art cities of Verona and Vicenza and the foothills of the Dolomites, with a sprinkling of Palladian villas and Prosecco vines in between, the region remains remarkably, and blissfully, free of visitors.

The towns and cities boast Roman ruins, museums and churches stuffed with masterpieces by Giotto, Canova and Tiepolo. The people of the Veneto are stylish, friendly and young at heart.

The Strada del Prosecco route leads from Conegliano to Valdobbiadene where the finest Italian sparkling wine is produced and where the views and the trattorias match the region’s reputation in wine.
