"I went to Trieste, then to Venice, then through Treviso, and Bassano to the
mountains, delicious Asolo, all my places and castles you will see."
Robert Browning, 1838.
Asolo: "The Pearl of the province of Treviso", and also as "The City of a Hundred Horizons".
Bassano: home of Italy's oldest grappa producer Nardini, he began production here in 1779.
Monte Grappa: 1775m, the location of several battles in WWI and WWII, the Memorial Monument at the top holds the ramins of some 12,615 soldiers.
Treviso: the original Pinarello store in the centre of Treviso where the business began in 1951.
Valdobbiadene: the home of Prosecco, its climate allows the growth of the cool variety of grape (Glera)
"When you mentioned the towns of Treviso, Asolo and Bassano to me,
I had no idea of what and where I was going.
There was no need for me to worry,
as I know you always take me to the most amazing places there are to
ride a bike, eat traditional cuisine, drink fine wine.
Looking forward to Spain next year!"
