Bassano del Grappa Bassano Del Grappa, Italy

Bassano del Grappa is a floursighing economic and cultural centre on the River Brenta made famous by its bridge. The houses and palazzos, often frescoed on the outside walls, remind the visitor of the city's traditional role as a place of trade and production, acting for centuries as an intermediary between Venice and the world of Germanic empires.

Walking through the historical center you reach three central squares flanked by lovely buildings such as Monte di Pietà and Loggia del Comune. Piazza Garibaldi is home to the City Museum (Museo Civico), which contains various paintings by Jacopo da Ponte and other artwork.

However, the true gem of Bassano is its covered wooden bridge, which was designed by Andrea Palladio and rebuilt various times with its original appearance. The last time it was rebuilt was after World War II. Bassano is also famous for its beautiful ceramics and the production of grappa. Make sure to visit the historic site of the Nardini Distilleries next to the wooden bridge.
