Best Veneto Hill Towns Small Group Day Trip from Venice

Visit the hill town of Asolo!

Fist stop is the medieval village Marostica, where the famous living game of chess is played every September in even-numbered years. Your tour includes a walk through the backstreets of this charming town.

Next stop is the enchanting Asolo, known as 'the pearl of the Veneto' with its delightful gardens and palatial villas, you'll visit picturesque Bassano del Grappa. Here, you'll take a guided tour of the town and have free time to shop for grappa (the local firewater), ceramics and porcini mushrooms.

A tour of the Veneto would be incomplete without visiting a Palladian villa. The Villa Barbaro is one of the most celebrated works by the famous Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, with fine frescoes by Veronese. The price of the tour includes entrance fees and a guided tour of the Villa Barbaro with a local expert guide.

Veneto is a land of good food and wine, and for lunch (optional) a local restaurant has been selected where you can taste the regional cuisine accompanied by local wines. Saving the best till last, the tour concludes on the prosecco wine road and a visit to a local vineyard. Your day in the Veneto will come to a close with a refreshing glass of local prosecco (sparkling wine) or two.

Amazing - AMAZING tour!! The guide was wonderful and really personalized the trip to the 8 of us in the group. I was not familiar with this part of Italy, but I like it more than Tuscany. The restaurant we went to was also great. - The private Presco tasting was the very educational the setting was beautiful. .

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The trip went through lovely towns and I liked that there were only 8 people, which allowed some flexibility. It was a pleasure to get out of the crowds in Venice and see something of the countryside. Of course, tasting wine is always a pleasure, and there were affordable bottles to purchase also at the vineyard.
