Italy

The verdant Veneto region in north east Italy is a land of sparkling prosecco, timeless landscapes and charm. Little has changed in Venice’s design for the past 700 years. It is a dense network of waterways with 118 islands and more than 400 bridges over its 150 canals. Instead of main streets, you will find main canals, instead of cars you will find gondolas. Venice and its lagoon are UNESCO World Heritage listed and the whole city is an extraordinary architectural masterpiece. Venice Carnevale takes place every February, its iconic Venetian masks and costumes a spectacular feast for the senses.

Nearby towns of Padua and Verona can be reached by car or train or are best appreciated on a guided tour of this region. Explore the heartland of the former Venetian Republic, a region that has one of the Italy's richest historical, natural, artistic, cultural, and culinary heritages.

When to visit

Are you wondering when is the best period to visit Venice? The best seasons are undoubtedly   the spring months  - March, April and May when the weather in Venice, Italy is mild and ideal for walking - or   September and October. During the summer months, the heat sometimes makes the climate in Venice unpleasant, while in winter the temperature can drop below 0°C. Regarding   the rest of the Veneto region, the most suitable periods are more or less the same as indicated also for Venice, Spring (April-May) and Autumn (October-November): in these months, the colours of nature are particularly beautiful, and the mild climate in Venice, Italy favours the Venetian outdoor excursions.

From  March to June   the wine lovers can enjoy   the several  Prosecco festivals around Valdobbiadene area!
