The Venetian Prealps (Prealpi Venete in Italian) are a mountain range in the south-eastern part of the Alps. They are located in Triveneto, in the north-eastern part of Italy.

Geography[edit]

Administratively the range is divided between the Italian provinces of Trento (in the Region of Trentino Alto Adige), Verona, Vicenza, Treviso, Belluno (in the Region of Veneto) and Pordenone (in the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia).

The Venetian Prealps are drained by the rivers Adige, Brenta, Piave and other minor rivers and streams, all of them tributaries of the Adriatic sea.
