Bassano del Grappa





One of the places in Italy that we've always had intentions of visiting is Bassano del Grappa. If you ever socialise with someone from Treviso, and we do from time to time.. grappa always finds its way into the conversation and your glass! Regional pride means the grappa of choice is from Bassano, most likely the Nardini brand.

The Thirsty Traveler has even been there!

Park at the Museo Biblioteca-Archvio and walk through the streets to the Piazza Liberta, the old bridge, distillery.. with cafes and a beautiful bakery, Bassano del Grappa is the perfect place to wander!

Salute!

A town that is worth a visit because exquisite wine can be tried there.

Definitely! Treviso, Veneto, is a spectacular region. It was a trip fuelled by grappa but we also discovered some delightful wines and prosecco (courtesy of neighbouring Valdobbiadene) as well.
Thank you to the bartender at Bar Posta for the impromptu prosecco tasting and the staff at Le Vele Agriturismo in Altivole for their hospitality. Ottimo!
