Art, architecture and culinary traditions

Venice’s influence extended well beyond the borders of the lagoon. Great artists such as Palladio, Titian and Veronese hailed from the lands conquered by the Venetians and left behind a lasting mark in the art and architecture throughout the Veneto. The Villas of the Veneto are surrounded by wonderful Italian gardens, sophisticated and elegant in their design and vegetation. The artistic richness is accompanied by the culinary and gastronomic quality of this region which has held on to its traditions of the past, reinventing them with a contemporary flavour.
