Inspiring territories of excellences
My Venice offers an enthralling experience through a journey to discover the territories and unique settings from where its excellencies come.
Made up of a small archipelago of 7 islands very close to Venice, Murano has been known for centuries all over the world for its glass blowing with furnaces that are still working. Inhabited since ancient times due to its proximity to the important Roman port of Altino, it became particularly important in 1295 when all Venetian glassmaking activities were concentrated on this island. The skill and mastery of the master glassmakers became a true art with various applications still in use today. One of them in particular, the Art of Venetian glass beads, has been a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site since 2020.
A city with over 3000 years of history which boasts important testimonies recognized worldwide such as the prestigious University founded in 1222, the venerated sanctuary of St. Anthony, Prato della Valle one of the largest squares in Europe and two inscriptions in the Unesco Heritage list: since 1997 with the oldest Botanical Garden in the world still in its original location and from July 2021 for the priceless pictorial cycles of the 14th century located in 8 buildings including the precious Scrovegni Chapel with Giotto’s frescoes.
Colle santa Lucia (BL)
The small village is located within the Natural Park of the Dolomites, considered among the most beautiful mountains in the world, which owe their name to the presence of the mineral dolomite that gives the rocky spires of the landscape a pearly sheen. Due to their particular geological importance and unique landscape and culture, these mountains have been a UNESCO Natural Heritage Site since 2009.
Colli Euganei (PD)
The Euganean Hills are a group of conical hills of volcanic origin in the Veneto plain that became the first Regional Park of Veneto in 1989. The geology of the area explains the presence of numerous thermal springs frequented by the Paleovenetians, already renowned in Roman times and which today make up the “Bacino delle Terme Euganee”, the largest thermal spa in Europe. In this privileged context are the 3 golf clubs La Montecchia, Frassanelle and Terme di Galzignano, which belong to the prestigious Italian group PlayGolf54.
Castello di Godego (TV)
An area rich in archaeological finds, inhabited in ancient times by the Paleovenetians, it developed in Roman times because it was located along the consular road Postumia. Today the town has a clear agricultural vocation and is known for its historic mill and pasta factory that produces durum wheat pasta, considered a fundamental food of the Mediterranean Diet, a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site since 2010.
Bardolino is an enchanting place of Lombard origin located on the Venetian side of Lake Garda at the foot of the morainic hills of the Riviera degli Ulivi, where the presence of a mild Mediterranean climate favours the cultivation of vines and olive trees. From the latter, olive oil is extracted, the main ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet, recognised as a UNESCO Cultural Heritage in 2010.
Negrar - Valpolicella (VR)
Negrar is located in Valpolicella, a town just a few kilometres from the city of Juliet, the historic Verona, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. The particular geological composition and the favourable climate due to the proximity of Lake Garda and the protection of the Lessini Mountains, favour the cultivation of vines, which is the reason why this valley has been known since Roman times for the production of high quality wines, today appreciated worldwide.
Guia di Valdobbiadene (TV)
Over the centuries, the hand of man has skilfully shaped this rugged natural environment characterised by steeply sloping hills, alternating vine cultivation on the hillsides with woods and small villages, giving the environment a unique and distinctive beauty. To preserve this ‘cultural landscape’, from 2019 the Prosecco Hills of Conegliano-Valdobbiadene will be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
