Bassano del Grappa is a city of arts and history. Its streets, ancient town walls, buildings and towers evoke a feel of past times that will lead you on an exciting journey into a bygone world.
The city has jealously treasured its own art beauties, delivered today in all their splendor: paintings and frescoes by Jacopo Da Ponte, Tiepolo, Veronese, sculptures by Antonio Canova, Andrea Palladio’s architecture and the Remondinis’ printings.
Handicrafts too tell the very soul of the town: a tradition perpetuated since time immemorial, in particular ceramics, jewelry, wood manufacturing and tanning.
The original ‘grappa’ has its birthplace here, a peasant brandy of a simple but genuine tradition, now turned famous all over the world. Excellent wines will delight your palate, matching perfectly with the products of our land: the white asparagus of Bassano, the green beans of Borso, the cherries of Marostica, red chicory, mushrooms, and more…
The journey continues where the streets open out into the countryside, through hills, medieval towns, castles, palaces and villas, all set in a sweet, mellow landscape. On the background stands the majestic Mount Grappa, historical scene to World War I – today a landmark for paragliding and naturalists.
Up north the river Brenta takes over the landscape, engraving fairy-tale caves, impressive gorges and pleasant bends. An irresistible invitation to enjoy the felling of freedom, cycling, horse-riding, trekking or rafting.
Yes, the heart of Veneto Region is truly a kaleidoscope of arts, tradition and history, woven with gastronomy, craftsmanship, nature and outdoor sports, bestowing emotions that you will never forget.
