The Venetians, a stubborn and tireless worker with a thousand ideas!
Veneto, officially the Region of Veneto, is an ordinary-status Italian region with a population of 4,858,092, situated in north-eastern Italy, with the city of Venice as its historic and administrative capital. The fifth most populated region in Italy, and sixth most visited in Europe (first in Italy) according to Eurostat data, with 19.6 million arrivals and 69.2 million tourists in 2020, it is named after the Veneti, an Indo-European people that settled in the territory after the middle of the second millennium BC. Veneto is a region in north-eastern Italy stretching from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea. Venice, the capital city, is famous for its canals, Gothic architecture, and carnival. For more than a millennium, between the 7th and 18th centuries, Veneto was part of the powerful Republic of Venice. Close to Lake Garda, which bathes the Alps, lies Verona, the medieval city where Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” is set.
