Discovering the Ancient town of Belluno

I love being spontaneous and not deciding on which city in Northern Italy to explore. We just got in our Jeep and headed towards Valdobbiadene.

Bassano del Grappa ~

Ahh, If you were to ask me what are my top 3 favorite cities in Veneto, I would definitely have to say Bassano del Grappa is surely one of them. 

Bassano is home to Renzo Rossi the founder and President of Diesel, the spirit Grappa which is usually an after dinner drink but lets face it here in Veneto, its quite common to have Grappa in your caffe after lunch and dinner or maybe even just as a shot.
I can’t tell you all enough that its best to visit these lovely, quaint towns in the Winter time when there aren’t as many tourists, its kind of like you have the whole city to yourself. My only advice would be not to go on a Sunday as we did here.. Haha! It was still just as amazingly beautiful with tons of people.. I love to people watch anyhow. Don’t you?
I decided to play “tourist” on a cold day in February. Roberto, my brother in law was my tour guide.
Please enjoy the photos..
