Organizing a trip out of town, even during the day, has never been easier if your destination is Bassano del Grappa! A town that preserves the soul of a country, the views and the enchanted atmosphere of a small village, the beauty, the simple one, which draws the contours of a beautiful bridge over the water, the scent of freshly baked bread and a good glass of grappa.
The symbol of the city of Bassano is, without a shadow of a doubt, the Ponte Vecchio. Also called “Ponte degli Alpini” or “Ponte di Legno”, it is the first attractions that we invite you to visit in the city. Built entirely of wood, the bridge is a symbol of wooden architecture dating back to 1209, a jewel on which even the well-known architect Andrea Palladio put his hands, and today one of the most beautiful and characteristic bridges in Italy.
If you want to admire the spectacular views offered by this iconic bridge, position yourself at its center: turn north where the panorama opens onto Valsugana, between green mountains and the Brenta River that flows with its crystal clear waters. To the north east you can admire the grandeur of the well-known Monte Grappa, while to the south the waters of the river flow up to lap the historic houses dating back to the battles of the war.
But if you really want to fall in love, take a moment to look under yourself! Numerous fishes swim waiting for the generosity of some tourists, while ducks, geese and swans turn undisturbed between the banks of the river creating a unique and romantic atmosphere.
This and much more awaits you in Bassano del Grappa. Between the Hemingway museum, the numerous architectures that tell of a glorious past, the famous grappa and the walks that draw the enchanted nature of the Venetian Prealps: are you ready to fall in love with this iconic city on the river?
Three good reasons to visit:
The Landscape: From the Ponte Vecchio you see the wonderful landscapes of the Venetian Prealps from every perspective
Ponte degli Alpini: The characteristic wooden bridge overlooking the Brenta River, a distinctive sign of Bassano del Grappa. Impossible not to stop to admire it!
Grappa: if you pass through Bassano, you cannot miss the opportunity to stop in one of the local places to bring home a souvenir. If, on the other hand, you want to taste a glass of Grappa, take the opportunity to stay in the surrounding area, do not drive!
