Veneto or Venetia or more specifically Venezia Euganea is one of the twenty regions of Italy. Its population is about five million, ranking fifth in Italy. The region’s capital and largest city is Venice.
Veneto is the 8th largest region in Italy, with a total area of 18,398.9 km2. It is located in the north-eastern part of Italy and is bordered to the east by Friuli Venezia Giulia, to the south by Emilia-Romagna, to the west by Lombardy and to the north by Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. At its northernmost corner it borders also on Austria.
The climate changes significantly between one area to another. Continental on the plains, the climate is milder along the Adriatic coast, around Lake Garda and in the hilly areas. The lowlands are often covered by thick fog. Precipitations are scarce (750 mm (30 in) per year) next to river Po River, more abundant (750 to 1,100 mm (30 to 43 in) per year) at higher altitudes.
