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.
