Vicenza and Bassano del Grappa

#artcities #nature #foodies

Noble palaces and culinary traditions. Vicenza is the city where the famous XVI century architect Andrea Palladio grew professionally: the streets of Vicenza and the surrounding countryside are spotted with its prestigious Venetian Villas and palaces. We’ll visit some of them and then move to Bassano del Grappa, surrounded by mountains and medieval villages. We won’t leave the culinary side of the trip behind: the lush hills of Vicenza hide great spots where to enjoy captivating truffle hunts and in the area around Bassano we’ll get to taste the local grappa and cheese.

Get inspired! This is a standard proposal.
Departure and return dates, duration of the trip, type of accommodation, experiences, transfers, meals and other services: the travel package will be created according to the desires and the needs of the Tour Operator and of the traveler.
