Veneto

One of the richest regions of Italy, Veneto is the most important area of the North-East in terms of economy and tourism and, no doubt, it offers strongly good chances for real estate investments.

 

In this region the communications are first rate for anyone wishing to travel back and forth to the Eastern and Western Europe. Several good airports are scattered in this area; the road network is first-rate too, offering direct connections to Switzerland, France, the Balkans Regions, Austria and Germany and down to central Italy.

CITIES OF VENETO
When we talk about the Veneto region, it isn’t just about Venice. This region has a number of major towns, many of them very ancient with a beauty and cultural veneto veronalife . There is Verona with its rose-washed mediaeval buildings and Roman remains; Treviso, set within 16th century walls and Padua, one of the most ancient cities in northern Italy — today, well known for it prestigious University. Last, there is Venice itself, the world’s most romantic city, certainly the most remarkable, but a relative newcomer compared with Verona, Padua and Vicenza: these cities are much older than Venice and once they were Roman settlements.

 

 

veneto veneziaVenice grew up much later: the barbarian invasions of the fifth and sixth centuries forced people to flee to the inhospitable islands in the lagoon north of the old Greek seaport of Adria (which gave its name to the Adriatic Sea). Venice was built around what is now the Rialto and all around the canals of the crowded lagoon, so to become, by the early Middle Ages, a great seapower (the home city of Marco Polo). If you do have the money to spend, there are properties for sale in plum sites in Venice, such as on the Grand Canal and the Rialto; those with smaller budgets are looking at up and coming areas such as Giudecca, where old industrial buildings are being converted into apartments. You’ll always find it well worth looking in Padua or Verona for property or heading to Vicenza or Treviso to find the price drops dramatically for a square metre.

 


If you are in Veneto, be welcomed to Lake Garda, Italy’s biggest lake with both old charming villages and modern towns. It provides a very versatile holiday veneto lago gardadestination, where you can find peace and quiet and wild nightlife, not to mention the somewhat challenging experience of visiting the famous theme park of Gardaland. There is a wealth of opportunity for excursions from here, either up to the Dolomites, or to the smaller lakes ,such as Lake Iseo. To the north and west, the mountains rise vertically from the lake. Today the lake is considered one of the best places around for hang-gliding, paragliding, windsurfing and mountain biking. The pleasant climate, fantastic countryside, the many historical places of interest make Lake Garda an internationally famous holiday destination.

 

THE CUISINE
veneto cuisineThere is pasta of course, homemade often, with bigoli noodles (a speciality of Vicenza), but in Veneto you will be eating a lot more rice than pasta though. The risotto here rivals that of Lombardy for its quality, often teamed with the seafood so popular in the region — clams, mussels and squid are very popular. Polenta is the other staple, often teamed with pork, and Tiramisu originated in Venice. You’ll discover exotic ingredients such as pomegranates, raisins and nuts, and spiced foods — all very un-Italian and a legacy of Venice’s great seafaring past, with ingredients brought home from the maritime empire. If you want to toast the purchase of your property in Veneto, do it with some great local wines (Bardolino, Soave and Valpolicella hail from Verona). There are excellent white and rose proseccos, and Bassano di Grappa is the home of the local acqua vitae — the strong spirit (liquor) well known as Grappa.
