Bassano del Grappa is an italian city tourists hardly ever hear of, and the purpose of this article is persuading you to consider it for your next trip.
Bassano is gorgeous. It rises on Brenta river and owes a lot to it: Ponte di Bassano (also referred as Ponte Vecchio to recognize it from Ponte Nuovo, or Ponte degli Alpini), originally built by Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio and refurbished and rebuilt multiple times, is the symbol of the city; there are paths and beaches on both sides of the river, where fishermen and locals always hang out at. The city center is beautiful with its three squares where lots of events such as the beautiful Carnival, Christmas market and cultural lectures take place. It is filled with shops, restaurants, drogherie (a special kind of food shop that is gradually disappearing) and popular cafés.
