Touristic and cultural attractions in Semonzo di Borso del Grappa
The foothills area is rich in little gems, villages like Asolo, Bassano del Grappa, Marostica, Cittadella offer the curious tourist a lot of surprising things, hidden corners, cultural events and museums.
The foothills area is superb for shopping and it is the right place to indulge on retail therapy, to enjoy an aperitif on a terrace, looking at the landscape, to try our wine and food, but here you have also the change to get amongst the history of these villages, walking on ancient walls or visiting our museums and historical buildings.
Here you won’t be stressed because of too much time spent looking for a car park or a restaurant, everything is available at-hand and on a human scale.
Bassano del Grappa can even be a good starting point to visit Padova and Venice, trains leave from Bassano every hour and take you there in about 50 minutes.
It stands on the hills south of Monte Grappa and offers stunning views.
Here you can’t miss a walk in the narrow streets: you must drink prosecco DOCG while tasting the famous “cicchetti” and have dinner in one of its traditional restaurants.
BASSANO DEL GRAPPA
Restaurants offer a large variety of traditional dishes, but there are also many pizzerias that serves the typical Naples pizza, no matter what you choose, you will be surely satisfied!
After dinner then you can’t miss a homemade icecream, shops in Bassano use only natural ingredients and the result is a surprisingly tasting icecream.
Every even year in September, in the chess square, the fight between Rinaldo d’Angarano e Vieri da Vallonara for Lionora, daughter of the Castellan of Marostica, is staged.
The walls were quite well preserved, but the Community some years ago started a restoring project and nowadays it’s possible to walk upon the walls, all around the town. This is one of the few examples still remaining in Europe. At the foot of the walls there are bars surrounded by pleasant garden, nice place where you can have a rest and drink something.
