4 places to admire the autumn leaves in Veneto

Veneto is full of countryside locations in which to enjoy the spectacle of the autumn foliage. That time when the woods are transformed into a vibrant mosaic of colours.

1. Cansiglio

The Cansiglio plateau, with its ancient forest, is located between the Belluno Pre-Alps and the upper Marca Trevigiana. Autumn is the best time to stroll among the beeches and spruces; take any of the many paths and you will find yourself walking amidst brushstrokes of red, yellow and ochre.

2. Feltrino

In autumn, this area in the province of Belluno is a natural wonder. One interesting area for admiring the autumn leaves is around the Sanctuary of San Vittore and Santa Corona, about 3 km from the centre of Feltre. The Nature Trail takes you through meadows and woods that in autumn are ablaze with warm colours.

3. The Asiago plateau

On the Asiago plateau, in the province of Vicenza, the autumn foliage transform the landscapes into a palette of colours. There is an almost endless choice of paths for walking enthusiasts: from gentle strolls in discovery of ancient districts to challenging hikes in the mountains.

4. Monti Lessini

In the province of Verona, the autumn colours are celebrated in all their splendour in the Lessinia Regional Park. One of the best places to admire the copper and golden shades of nature is the Valley of the Sphinxes with its fascinating limestone monoliths similar to Egyptian sphinxes.
