Castles, medieval villages, Venetian villas, towers and fortifications will transport you to the atmosphere of an epic past
Departure from the hotel and visit to Villa Contarini in Piazzola sul Brenta
Built on the remains of an ancient castle, after the purchase by the Contarinis this villa becomes more and more an example of display of magnificence with frescoes and statues and later with stables, the racecourse and a magnificent park.
Continue to the walled city of Cittadella
This walled city, among the best preserved in Europe, was fortified in 1220. It was disputed between the Scaligeri and the Carraras, eventually remaining under the dominion of the latter. In 1406 it passed to the Republic of Venice.
Bassano del Grappa
Located at the foot of Monte Grappa and crossed by the Brenta, this city boasts a consolidated commercial and artisan tradition. Under the arcades and alleys of the city you can stroll and admire Renaissance palaces and medieval churches. Among the points of interest in the city is the wooden bridge designed by Andrea Palladio which rises over the Brenta river. It is also called Ponte degli Alpini because it was rebuilt by the Alpine troops after the Second World War.
Visit to the city of Castelfranco
Town surrounded by quadrilateral walls of the 15th century with four towers plus the keep that dominates the side towards Treviso. The Cathedral is worth a visit where the famous altarpiece by Giorgione is kept and at the end stop in the artist’s house.
End of the tour with the city of Asolo
Defined as “the city of a hundred horizons” it is one of the most evocative villages in the Veneto region, both for its landscape and for its history. Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus who settled here in the magnificent castle given to her by the Venetians and the great actress Eleonora Duse who bought a palace in the historic center fell in love with this city.
