The rich artistic and cultural history Italy’s Veneto region draws from its long-standing position as the persistently independent Republic of Venice. Venice, the region’s big-ticket attraction, draws millions of tourists for its art, charm and stunning canals. On a visit to Veneto, explore the region’s varied landscape, from lagoons and hills to the Alps in the north and Adriatic Sea in the south. Immerse yourself in Shakespeare history in Verona, where Romeo and Juliet was born, or in medieval Padua (where the Scrovegni Chapel — pictured — is a must), the setting for The Taming of the Shrew. The famous Grana Padano cheese is produced throughout the region, as well as Asiago cheese, produced in the province of Vicenza.
