Mountain, sea or hill, the Veneto region offers exciting vacations in natural surroundings, with the opportunities for sport, relaxation and enjoyable experiences. From the Dolomites to Lessinia, famous resorts like Cortina d’Ampezzo, Falcade, San Vito di Cadore and others offer peerless experiences for winter sports enthusiasts: adrenaline-fuelled slopes for skiing or snowboarding, snow-rafting, climbing, trekking at all levels, special courses for cross-country skiing, snowshoe walks and exciting dogsled races. The golden coast that stretches from Bibione to Cavallino is perfect for working out: beach volleyball, sailing, surfing, waterskiing and cycling in cool pinewoods and pristine surroundings. Enjoy the nightlife in the trendy bars and clubs of tourist resorts. Golf enthusiasts will find several “greens” in the hills, with Lake Garda in the background or near the coast.
Nature lovers can go on excursions or follow trekking trails in the protected areas of Veneto, such as the National Park of the Dolomites of Belluno, renowned for its breathtaking scenery, or the Park of Lessinia, where you can see the typical fauna of the foothills of the Alps.
You can visit many places while mountain biking, including the Asiago Plateau, which is crossed by a network of trails with different levels of difficulty, amid extraordinarily beautiful landscapes.
Lovers of good food can follow the many wine trails: from Bardolino to Pramaggiore, from Conegliano to the other areas that have become known for their wine production, stopping at the wineries to taste excellent wines and typical products. The schedule of events is always full; some of these events are renowned worldwide, especially the Biennale and the Carnival of Venice, followed by exhibitions and art shows, several religious and village festivals, and the food fairs (sagre), even in the smallest village.
Lake Garda is important for the entertainment parks, which are collectively known as Parchi del Garda. The most important ones are Gardaland, a theme park with several attractions, accommodation facilities, and also a showy aquarium; Canevaworld, with a water park and another theme park based on cinema; Parco Natura Viva, a fauna park where visitors can see endangered species, which are looked after and then set free; and Parco Giardino Sigurtà, a green oasis covering 60 hectares along the Mincio River.
