Things to do in a Veneto vacation

The Veneto region is largely known for the cities of Venice, Padua and Verona. However, as much of the region is on the ocean it offers a wide range of water activities as well as a variety of beach side villas. Venice in particular is known for its leather goods and carnival masks, but shopping is popular with each city having plenty to offer shopaholics. Look into the Pyramid, a large 150 store mall near Padua. Also, ferries connect Venice with Croatian Istria. If you are certain about having a Mediterranean vacation, Istria is a much less popular and cheaper alternative.
