The Veneto region is located in the North-East of Italy. Here you can find a brief summary of its “features”. Its cities, its Unesco World Heritage Sites, its mountains, hills, natural parks, beaches, lakes, rivers and thermal baths. You’ll see, Veneto is not only Venice, but much more. Even if I’m trying to expand the blog’s range of influence, Veneto will always be its main core because it is my region.

I was born in the province of Venice but I have been living in Padova since I was 2 months. Sadly, I often feel my city should be better known, cause it suffers a lot for the proximity of Venice and Verona. I hope I can contribute to increase the interest towards it through My Corner of Italy. Ah, I almost forgot! Padua in Italian is Padova, Venice is Venezia. So pardon me if I sometimes use this or that term 🙂 . Now you can take a look at:
