    Off the Beaten Path in Veneto

Off the Beaten Path in Veneto

  • City: Venice
  • Duration: Approximately 8 hours

Scenic roads and characteristic villages will be encountered on this full-day private excursion of the Veneto that departs from Verona, Vicenza or Venice.

Overview

Enjoy a relaxing day in the Veneto hills to the north of Venice. Stroll around enchanting villages and towns, and savor the delicious Italian cuisine and famous wines of the Veneto. During this full-day tour you will travel along scenic back-roads, with enough time to enjoy each destination.

The first stop on this tour is the medieval town of Marostica, with its imposing fortified castle and a giant chessboard permanently laid out in the town square, where a famous living game of chess is played every two years.

Then you'll move on to the picturesque town of Bassano del Grappa where you will visit the magnificent Palladian bridge. As you walk through the narrow streets and spacious squares of this town, renowned for its hand-painted ceramics, you will enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding hills and mountains. You'll also sample some of the local "firewater" known as grappa.

Next stop is the enchanting and elegant hill town of Asolo - 'the pearl of Veneto' - filled with full of medieval houses, beautiful Renaissance palaces and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

Famous for being the most richly decorated of all the Palladian villas, with amazingly detailed Renaissance frescoes by Paolo Veronese, Villa Barbaro at Maser is the highlight of your afternoon.

The tour will end with a visit to Treviso, a small city with canals just like Venice, but with frescoed house facades, medieval arcades and charming (and still working) waterwheels.
