Escape the crowds of Venice for a full day of sightseeing in the enchanting hill towns of Veneto. Meet your guide in central Venice in the morning, and hop aboard a comfortable minivan for the approximately 1-hour drive north. Stop in the village of Marostica for a stroll through the charming medieval streets and see the square where the town’s famous ‘living chess’ game is played. 
Continue on to Asolo, where you can wander around lovely gardens and historic villas in this town known as the ‘pearl of Veneto.’ At nearby Bassano del Grappa, take a guided tour and then enjoy leisure time to shop for local artisan goods. Perhaps even pick up a bottle of the potent grappa liqueur for which the town is known. 
In Maser, explore the historic grandeur of Villa Barbaro — a wonderfully preserved estate designed by renowned Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. Stroll through well-manicured gardens and admire frescoes by Veronese that adorn the grand hallways and public rooms of the villa. 
When it’s time for lunch, savor delicious Veneto cuisine at a local restaurant (own expense). Opt to include regional wine pairings with your meal if you like. Finally, drive through rolling vineyards on the way to a prosecco winery, where you’ll raise a glass of the beloved sparkling wine and toast your day in the country.

Great excursion to Asolo, Villa Barbaro, Bassano, etc....charming towns, interesting travelers, & superb guide: Marco! Grand finale was the Prosecco tasting!
A Veneto Experience

This was a balanced small group tour well conducted by Marco the Guide . The drive through the countryside was uplifting and the towns visited were made enjoyable by Marco's guiding skills and he allowed ample time for photo stops and free time...Apart from the bridge over the Brenta being under repair this was a tour to remember.being capped of by the wine tasting at a vineyard in the hills at the last stop. We would stress that it is a long day but well worth the time
wonderful day in the Veneto hills

What an exquisite day! With an early start from Venice Tronchetto, a small group of us 6 made our way to the gentle hills of the Veneto. Marco our driver/guide was much obliging, friendly and informative. The pace was laid back and allowed lots of time to simply stroll though the charming villages of Marostica, discover Bassano de Grappa with its incredible Poli Grappa Museum and its Grappa tasting and Asolo for an al fresco lunch in the Piazza optional. From there, Marco drove us to the Palladian Villa Barbaro which was quite interesting to visit. Then off to the Prosecco hills where a thunderstorm caught us and gave us spectacular play of lights over the Prosecco vineyards. We stopped at CaSalina and had quite a comprehensive degustation of all levels of Prosecco. What a better way to end this day. Returned to Venice around 7pm with lots of great memories! Thoroughly enjoyed this well organized excursion

Bassano del Grappa was really beautiful. With only 5 people the guide was able to give us a lot of personal attention. Asolo and other towns were nice. The Palladio villa was a nice break between the two wine tasting events.

This was one of the nicest guided tours I have ever taken. Giovanni, the driver and guide, was knowledgeable and funny, and allowed us just the right amount of time in each spot. The group was small and congenial, and the stops were diverse and beautiful. Five stars!

The only good thing about that specific tour is that it's really small group: total of 6 people including our guide I believe they take a maximum of 8. Other tours say 'small group' and you end up with a bunch of people 40...that may be why it is quite expensive, however still too expensive for what you get and the only really interesting part in our view was the visit of Bassano del Grappa. We did not enjoy that much the rest of the tour which we found quite boring.

Just the right number of stops to make for a perfect day: the charming little town of Asolo, grappa tasting in Bassano del Grappa, and prosecco at a lovely winery. Our guide, Marco, was friendly, entertaining, and informative.

This is spectacular trip with a very informative guide, Marco. The countryside was beautiful and it gave us a different side of Italy. The pastry and restaurant recommendations were helpful and accurate. The stops were well timed. Overall a very pleasant day.
