Your first tour stop is Marostica, famous all over the world for the human chess game it carries out every other year, with personages living in the city public square. Starting inthe second week of September, it is a tradition dating back to in AD 1923 inspired by a supposed event in AD 1454.
Then it’s on to the peaceful town of Bassano del Grappa, synonymous with its production of the firewater of the mountains know as grappa! Crossin the celebrated Palladian bridge over the river Brenta, you will be able to visit the famous distillery situated right on the bridge and have an opportunity to stock up on a bottle or two of grappa.
Next stop of the tour will be Asolo, spectacularly set in the cypress-clad foothills of the Dolomites. With its tiny archways, architectural details and castle of Caterina Cornaro, the Queen of Cyprus, it’s no wonder Asolo is known as the pearl of Veneto.
The Asolo Theatre remains there today, where it enjoys a teinassance of theatre performances, both from the Asolo Repertory Theatre and the Florida State University/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training.
The town was also home to the English poet Robert Browning, the actess Eleonora Duse, the explorer Freya Stark, the violinist Wilma Neruda and the composer Gian Francesco Malipiero.
