Veneto Towns

Padua, Vicenza and Verona are prosperous, attractive towns with much to offer the visitor so it is surprising that they are not very strong in hotels. There are plenty of quite ordinary ones, though we have sieved through them and found some of the best places to stay in the Veneto, so that you don't have to.

The hotels fill very easily during trade fairs, of which there are many. Vicenza, for example, holds three very large jewellery fairs every year and you would do well to check on the town’s website and avoid them.

Padua hosts an international cat show, a bridal show and a large biannual horticultural show.

And during the season (mid-June to early September) countless opera lovers crowd into Verona for the performances in its vast Arena. Then prices go up and standards come down.

It is easy to fill the rooms and perhaps this has made hoteliers complacent. Too many offer a dull room with reproduction furniture and heavy damasks, approached through public rooms of no distinction.

Our particular favourites amongst the best places to stay in the Veneto towns would have to be:

  • Sogno di Giulietta - a hugely romantic choice in the centre of Verona. Jacuzzi baths come as standard and breakfast is served in your room!
  • Gabbia d'Oro - small luxury hotel in Verona with quirky touches and most of the rooms are suites.
  • Hotel Accademia - slightly dated Verona hotel that has a trusty band of followers. Perfect position for shopping and just minutes on foot from the arena.

Veneto Countryside

Outside the towns it is another matter. The region is well off for attractive luxury hotels with spas and fine restaurants. We think the best places to stay in the Veneto are the family-owned ones where one or two individuals take a personal interest in the guests and have invested in a much-loved estate.

The food in several of them is outstanding and wine-lovers will find that the standard - particularly of Prosecco, the best of which never leaves Italy and has little in common with the poor man’s champagne found in England - is very high indeed. Several hotels arrange tastings and visits to winemakers in their locality.

For fabulous food book into:

  • Villa Abbazia - the perfect place for gourmets: both its restaurants have Michelin stars and the wine list is extensive. The rooms are tasteful too!
  • Hotel Villa del Quar - luxury manor house hotel dating back to the 16th Century. Beautiful interiors and superb food, and handsome grounds with pool.

The drawback of these attractive places is, of course, that they can be expensive and if you want to explore, you will need a car.

You will notice that the villas of Palladio, particularly associated with Vicenza, are actually spread across the region and one of the finest of them, the Villa Barbaro at Maser, is much nearer Asolo and Follina.

For the best places to stay in Veneto for a rural escape try:

It pays to be attentive to the map. For example, an art lover who wants to see Giotto’s wonderful murals in the Scrovegni chapel might do better to stay in Venice and make the short trip by rail - its quick, cheap and easy - rather than staying in Padua.

60 million tourists come to the Veneto every year; it is the most visited part of Italy. Most go to Venice, but those who visit the hinterland will find much to delight them; great music, important paintings, fine wines, the villas built for rich Venetian clients who recognised the point of the terra firma, the rural calm away from the busy canals and squares. You will enjoy it as much as they did.

Check out our pick of the best places to stay in Veneto and start to plan your stay.
