….no this is not a history lesson, a few photo’s of the things I found interesting and loved as we walked around Bassano Del Grappa…in the heart of town there was a buzz of locals, tourists, everyone enjoying the start of the Spring weather, having a coffee at one of the local cafe’s or taking a photo of the many historical buildings..in the centre of town Piazza Libertà there is the Church of St. John the Baptist, town hall and clock..
there are many frescoes on the walls and leading out through cobbled stone alleyways there still remains two of the original gates..
..one of the gates Porta Dieda and the other Porta della Grazie.
The streets of this historic centre are filled with statues, fountains, cafe’s and boutiques….and every angle doted with mignon gardens full of colour and perfume….the boutique shops are just so colourful, their window displays are amazing with a continuous urge to enter through their doors to have an extra glimpse inside…
How can you not resist buying a hot fresh bread roll or sweet bread from this bakery, not to mention the perfume as you walk past the door………or buying some of the local Bassano ceramics…..
maybe some porcini mushrooms…..
We had a wonderful day walking around this town, a truly pleasurable and memorable place to visit…Bassano Del Grappa
