Must-sees around Venice area

Hello,

I am going to Venice in a week with my girlfriend. We are renting a car and most definitely intend to visit the area around venice for a day. Would you recommend a few must-sees. We both like looking at very old cities, walking around in them and not particularly visiting museums. I already know we can visit padua and verona, but are there other good options? Torri del Benaco,Soave, Villafranca di Verona, Garda and Bardolino look like the biggest tourist areas.

We are staying in Mestre and will be out for a road trip starting 10 AM on a wednesday morning, if that helps.

Maybe Asolo and Arquà Petrarca would be good options, both are small enchanted villages, the main reason to go there is walking in the old little roads and enjoy the atmosphere.

Do not forget the Palladio City of Vicenza. Great for a walk around. If you are only doing 1 day trip you should see Verona and Vicenza, if there is time left stop off in Padova.

Consider also some daytrips out to the Islands, Murano, Burano, etc.
