Libreria Palazzo Roberti

Another iconic building in the city is the “Libreria Palazzo Roberti“, a library imbued with history. Legend say that Napoleon slept in one of its rooms! It is also an incredible opportunity to find a nice book to truly enjoy your Italian holidays.

Monte Grappa: a hiking paradise!

As Bassano del Grappa is very close to the Alps, you will have plenty of fun if you are really fond of hiking! Monte Grappa in particular, which gives the name to the city, has breathtaking views and fascinating paths to offer.
