The Mangart (Italian Mangàrt) (2677 m) is the fourth highest and one of the most characteristic peaks of the Julian Alps. It is located on the border between Slovenia and Italy. To the parking lot on the west side of the mountain leads the Mangartstraße, which branches off from the Predil-Pass road. From the top you have a beautiful view of the highest mountain in Slovenia, the Triglav. An area that represents 29% of its territory is mountainous (Carnic Alps), the eastern Dolomites and the Venetian Prealps. The best known massif in the Dolomites is Marmolada, while the highest, with 3,342 masl, is the Tofane massif. Other dolomitic peaks are the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and the Pale di San Martino. The Venetian Prealps are not that high and range from 700 to 2,200 meters above sea level. A distinctive feature of the Prealps are the cavernous formations, including chasms and pits; the Spluga della Preta, located in the Lessini mountains (2,263 m) in the province of Verona, has an explored depth of 985 meters, the deepest cave in Italy. It is worth mentioning also the plateau of the Seven Municipalities (Sette Comuni), a vast plateau that is located in the Vincentian Prealps, in the area north of the province of Vicenza on its border with the province of Trento. The Po Valley covers 57% of Veneto. This valley is formed by a plain that stretches from the mountains to the Adriatic Sea, interrupted only by some low hills, such as the Beric mountains, the Euganean hills (ancient volcanoes), the Asolani and Montello hills, which constitute the remaining 14% Of the territory. The plain itself is subdivided into the high plain (dominated by gravel and not very fertile) and the low plain (rich in water sources and arable land). The lower plain is both a support for agricultural production and the most populated part of the region. The Adige in Verona Torcello Island, seen from the Venice lagoon. Several rivers flow through the region, the main ones being the Po, the Adige and the Piave. The eastern shore of the largest lake in Italy, Lake Garda, belongs to Veneto. The coast stretches for approximately 200 km, of which 100 km are beaches. The shores of the Adriatic Sea are characterized by the Venice lagoon, a flat terrain with lagoons, marshes and islands. The Po delta to the south has sand bars and dunes along the coastline. The inland portion contains arable land recently reclaimed by a canal and levee system. The delta is a stopping point for migratory birds. The climate changes significantly from one area to another. It is continental in the plains, with rigorous winters and warm summers; The climate is milder along the Adriatic coast, around Lake Garda and in the hilly areas. The lowlands are often covered in thick fog. Rainfall is scarce (750 mm. / Year) near the Po river, more abundant (750-1,100 mm. / Year) at higher altitudes; the highest values (up to 3,200 mm./year) are registered in the Prealps of Belluno, near Pasubio (Strada delle 52 gallerie) and the Asiago plateau.
