Travel to Veneto

Veneto

Valeggio sul Mincio in the Veneto

If we look at the Veneto region as a visitor, we see that a very diverse picture emerges, because apart from the great attraction that Venice represents, the region consists of wine-growing areas where most of the sparkling wine comes from, then we have the endless Po Valley and Po Delta that fills the Italian warehouses.


Smaller rivers such as the Mincio with ancient villages, canals such as the Brenta where the influential Venetians built their villas full of splendour which we are now allowed to visit. Lake Garda, on the east side, and the beautiful historic city of Verona, where nowadays we can also say yes on the Juliet's balcony. Further north we see the majestic Dolomites and winter resorts such as Cortina, traditionally a famous ski resort. And to complete the picture, you can go along the coast to the beautiful white beaches of Bibione and next you can visit the Lidos of Venice. Not to mention our favourite among the Italian cities, the eternal city of Venice.

  1. Cipriani-Venice

    Italy, the land of pasta, fashion, stunning coastlines, and of course... celebrities! It's long been a hotspot for the rich and famous, but let's be honest, not every celeb is blessed with good taste. Let's take a glimpse into the glittering lives of these A-listers on Italian soil.

  2. Rome's Colosseum - Amphitheater

    In the heart of Italy, amidst the ruins of a civilization once magnificent, two tech titans were poised for an encounter unlike any in the modern world. Rumors had been circling that Elon Musk of X (formerly Twitter) and Mark Zuckerberg CEO of META (Facebook), two of the most influential personalities of the digital age, would meet in a cage match. And not just any match, but one set against the grandeur of Ancient Rome in any one amphitheatre of Italy.

    Italy is increasingly becoming a destination for golf lovers, crowned in 2023 with the Ryder Cup. The country offers a combination of a favorite sport with a trip to stunning surroundings. With more than 400 facilities, 150 golf courses with at least 18 holes and golf resorts in super panoramic locations. We have selected the most scenic greens, perfect for a top golf vacation.

  4. Valeggio sul Mincio, a charming medieval village in Veneto

    Located on the border of two regions, Lombardy and Veneto, just south of Lake Garda, is the extremely charming village of Valeggio sul Mincio, spread across the hills. It's a true discovery for tourists, who will wonder how such beauty can remain hidden in such a beautiful setting and at such a short distance from art cities like Verona and Mantua. The Mincio river winds its way through one of the most beautiful valleys of the Po area.

  5. Hotel Bristol Rapallo Portofino

    Rome: the eternal city's hotel scene is set for a boost with a new branch of Nobu Hotels and Six Senses hotels, plus the boutique hotel ROMEO Roma, in a 16th-century palace by Zaha Hadid. But at the top of our must-visit list is the Bulgari Rome. This Italian brand owns hotels as far away as Shanghai and Bali, but is finally opening its flagship in its hometown coming this spring or summer. Housed in a 1930s modernist building composed mostly of travertine marble and red brick, it will surely be the

    As Valentine's Day approaches, it's time to compile my list of top romantic destinations in Italy. Naturally, this list is for Italian amore all year round. From Piedmont to Puglia, or Trentino to the Thyrrenian, I've selected the perfect spot to satisfy your romantic soul.

  7. Italy's favourite summer festivals

    Italy is a country with a rich cultural heritage and a vibrant arts scene, and there is no better time to experience it than during the summer months. From June to September, Italy is home to a wide range of summer festivals that showcase everything from music and dance to food and wine. Whether you're a lover of classical music, jazz, or rock and roll, there's a festival in Italy for you.

  8. Carnival of Viareggio

    I don’t usually pay a whole lot of attention to religious festivals, but, like many, I always like a good party, and when it comes to Carnival, Italy never disappoints – and Carnival in Venice and Viareggio are not to miss.

  9. Thermal springs in Italy

    Do you have muscle pain, joint pain or stress? A warm mud bath rich in sulfur and minerals does wonders and usually helps you get rid of it. It has been successfully used for centuries in the treatment of various ailments. Mud baths benefit from removing excess fluid, especially in the tissues of the legs, abdomen and hips. The most important ingredient is of course always the thermal water.

  10. Canyon Brent de l’Art south of Belluno

    A true spectacle of nature in the beautiful Valbelluna along the San Boldo Pass, "the road of 100 days"

  11. The Original Tiramisu recipe

    The story about the origin of the famous Italian dessert Tiramisu was first told to me by chef Celestino Giacomello of the famous hotel  Gritti Palace  in Venice. He also assured me that this dish is at least as authentic Venetian as a gondolier. 

  12. Rose Extra Brut La Montina Franciacorta

    It's been a long time since we associated popping corks and sparkling wines only with weddings, New Year's Eveparties or the launching of a new ship. And When even the French are turning to Prosecco instead of Champagne, it's maybe time to pay some attention to it.

    It is almost impossible to ignore the big blue and red boxes in the supermarket during the holidays. The Italian Panettone has nestled itself forever on the shelves. If you've ever been tempted to take a Panettone home, you'll most likely, like me, have been a little disappointed.

  14. Stunning Aerial Shots of Italy

    An exceptional series with drone recordings of numerous Italian regions and cities, unimaginable images, each outdoing the other. I cannot make a choice which one I like best, but if I had to, the Matera cave dwellings would be somewhere in the top of my personal list. Don't miss the video of a completely empty Florence during the Corona lockdown and the emotional images of an abandoned Rome with the Tricolore flying over it. Those who love Sardinia can enjoy the beautiful beach images, and if you think about your ski holiday, how about a bird's eye view around the
