Walking holidays in the Veneto

Discover Headwater's walking holidays in Veneto; highlights include its rich cultural heritage, its art, fine architecture, pretty wildflowers, friendly hotels and great Venetian home cooking.

On a Veneto holiday with Headwater you'll explore the region's contrasting landscapes: to the west are the shores of Lake Garda, to the north the Dolomites, and eastwards the verdant Euganean Hills give way to plains of maize stretching out to the Venetian lagoon.

This wealth of contrasts has inspired poets and playwrights since time began. Livy, Petrarch, Corbis, Goethe, Byron and Shelley all sojourned here. Four major Shakespeare plays are set here, and although the Bard never visited, it is easy to imagine passionate embraces and secret plotting taking place in Padua and Verona's narrow streets or Venice's maze of alleyways of piazzettas.

Walking in the Venetian Hills

The wonderfully unspoilt Venetian countryside is only an hour or so from the great city of Venice, but couldn't be more different! Here is a landscape of rolling hills, shady forests, vineyards and fields ablaze with colourful flowers.
