Veneto is one of the twenty regions of Italy. 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 Lombardia and to the north by Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. At its northernmost corner it borders also on Austria.

Venezia is the capital of Veneto with 264 thousand residents. Other notable cities are the provinces Belluno, Padova, Rovigo, Treviso, Verona and Vicenza.

Veneto was part of the Roman Empire until the 5th century AD. Later, after a feudal period, it was part of the Republic of Venezia until 1797. Venezia ruled for centuries over one of the largest and richest maritime republics and trade empires in the world. After the Napoleonic Wars and the Congress of Vienna, the Republic was annexed by the Austrian Empire, until it was ceded to the Kingdom of Italy in 1866, as a result of the Third Italian War of Independence.

Besides Italian, most inhabitants also speak Venetian. The region is home to a notable nationalist movement.
