Hard not to visit a city like Bassano del Grappa; it has so much to offer to the tourist that there is no visitor with any interest in the town. A land of food and wine features resources, including in fact the white asparagus of Bassano. It is precisely the white asparagus of Bassano to be the protagonists from April to May, with evenings devoted to it, in various events in town.
The white asparagus only recently received the DOP mark, a quality mark that recognizes its uniqueness. The production area of the asparagus of Bassano is controlled and limited and characteristics vary according to crop conditions, soil type and other factors.
The continuous murmur of the waters of the Brenta, which crosses the city, sometimes with too much energy, seems to almost continuously revitalize its inhabitants, very active and dynamic people.
More than 40,000 residents, convinced that the quality of life passes from the respect and love of the land, of its origins, its cultures and its ancient history.
Do not miss a visit to the bridge of Bassano del Grappa, the Ponte Coperto, or degli Alpini, built in 1209 dC, destroyed a dozen times by floods and wars, which offers a splendid panorama of the Brenta and of the mountains; the Upper Castle, the church of San Giovanni Battista, with its beautiful Baroque Chapel of the Sacrament; the church of San Francesco and Romanesque-Gothic Votive Temple of the Fallen, where six thousand soldiers are buried.
