The northern region of Veneto has mountainous areas, valleys and coastlines. It is also home to the beautiful, historic city of Venice with its canals, lagoons and islands. The northern part of the region is overlooked by the majestic Dolomites.
Veneto had been for more than a millennium an independent state, the Republic of Venice, until it was eventually annexed by Italy in 1866 after brief Austrian and French rule. Its capital was, and still is,Venice, which ruled for centuries one of the largest and richest maritime republics and trade empires in the world.Once the heartland of the Venetian Republic, Veneto is today among the wealthiest, most developed and industrialised regions of Italy. Having one of the country’s richest historical, natural, artistic, cultural, musical and culinary heritages, it is also one of the most visited regions of Italy, with about 60 million tourists every year.
