Weddings in Veneto, Italy

The most ideal wedding destination is one that takes place in an Italian town that is devoid of tourist crowds and city congestion. This is why Veneto fits the bill; although most people zip past it on the way to the celebrated Italian city of Venice, Veneto is all together charming and fascinating. It is a wealthy area; full of life, yet intimate. The region is popular with those who love art, history and architecture.

Veneto is comprised of the eastern part of the Po Valley and, to the north, a part of the Dolomites. This area combines two distinct aspects of Italian natural resources: the lagoon zone (Venice) and the grand peaks of the Dolomites of Cadore. Veneto has about 200 km of coastline looking out onto the Adriatic Sea with gorgeous sandy beaches. It has mountains, hills, plains, and on the eastern side of Lake Garda, thermal spas and Italy's two longest rivers: the Po and the Adige.

The climate in Veneto is pleasant most of the year; it can be harsh in the mountains during cold winters, but along the shores of the Adriatic Sea and Lake Garda, the weather is mild and enjoyable. Veneto's borders touch Austria to the north, Trentino-Alto Adige and Lombardy to the west, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and the Gulf of Venice to the east, and Emilia-Romagna in the south.

Veneto is a region in Italy with many large cities of cultural interest, including Venice, Padua and Verona. Most widely known as the home-place of 'Romeo and Juliet,' Verona is a captivating town filled with old-world charm. What a perfect location for a themed marriage ceremony!

The cities of Veneto are located primarily along the plains, away from the mountains located in the north. A visit to this area necessitates a stop along the beautiful towns on the foothills of the Alps and Dolomites. The scenery is enormously romantic, and a taste of the world-famous white asparagus is an absolute must.
