Cities, Towns, and Places

Chioggia veniceforvisitors.com
The largest fishing and yachting town on the Venetian Lagoon is an easy day or overnight trip from Venice by car or--better yet--by boat. (Also see Venice to Chioggia by Bus and Ferry.)

Vicenza veniceforvisitors.com
The magnificently preserved home town of Andrea Palladio, one of Italy's greatest architects, is less than an hour from Venice by train.

Treviso veniceforvisitors.com
Benetton is headquartered in Treviso, and budget airlines use Canova Airport as their gateway to Venice. But this prosperous, historic, and attractive small city is a worthy tourist destination in its own right.

Caorle
With its 200 hotels, the Acqualandia water park, and a school for pizza chefs, Caorle--a resort town 50 miles north of Venice--deserves more attention from foreign visitors.

Lago di Garda
Lake Garda, near Verona, is the largest of Italy's lakes. Its shores offer everything from sunny vineyards to sheer mountain cliffs.

Cortina d'Ampezzo
When you've had your fill of art, culture, and summer heat or winter drizzle, flee to Italy's most famous mountain resort.

Virtual Tourist: Padua
The historic city of Padua (in Italian, "Padova") has a major university and is within commuting distance of Venice by train.

Other Links

Dolomiti Delta Club
When Venice's summer crowds and climate become oppressive, head for the Dolomites and hang out with the hang gliders.

Palladio's Italian Villas
Venice's great Renaissance architect built grand country houses throughout the Veneto region. Many are open to the public today.
