Veneto

Veneto

The Veneto region is located in the northeast and is mountainous in the north and increasingly flat towards the south. The capital is Venice, which is located on islands in the largest lagoon. Both the north with the eastern Dolomites and the Adriatic coastline to the east, as well as Lake Garda to the west are areas frequented by tourists.

Borghetto

Houses over the water

This place served as a backdrop for the film Senso. No wonder, because the unique location on and over the water of the Muncio makes Borghetto an idyllic place. No wonder it has been named i borghi più belli d'Italia, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy!

Peschiera

Former fortress site

Peschiera del Garda is located in the southernmost point of Lake Garda, where the Mincio drains excess water from the lake. This place was once an important fortress in Northern Italy. Now it is utterly a tourist town.

Fortifications from WWI

The Alps were the scene of many battles in the First and Second World War. Before the start of the First World War, important routes through the Alps were protected by fortifications. We cycle around the Veneto Alps and view one of the many defenses.

Valparolapas

Desolate but beautiful pass

The Valparola Pass is distinguished from the other passes in the Dolomites by its desolate character. The landscape is barren, but the many rocks have their own charm.

Tre Croci

Snowstorm

From Cortina d'Ampezzo, the Tre Croci pass ascends to Misurina. How could it be otherwise, the name comes from three crosses that once stood at the height of the pass. In memory of victims of a snowstorm.
