Cities, Towns, and Places

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.)

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

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.

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.

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

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