Situated at the mouth of Chiampo valley, in a panoramic position on the Veneto plain, Gambellara lies on the border between Vicenza (22 km) and Verona (30 km). Its particular geographical position, the historical memories related to an episode of the Risorgimento and a widespread reputation derived from wine production, make it a lovely resort perfect for pleasant getaways.

The historic center of Vicenza, characterized by the classical architect Andrea Palladio’s style deserved recognition by UNESCO, along with the wonderful aristocratic mansions built by him. Among his works stand out the “Basilica Palladiana” and the beautiful “Loggia del Capitanio” in the “Signori Square”, Villa Capra Valmarana called “La Rotonda” and Villa Poiana surrounded by large parks.

Land of great charm, Veneto has many natural and artistic attractions with some destinations not to be missed.
First stage of a journey to discover the region is undoubtedly VENICE, considered Unesco World Heritage, with its lagoon, its islands and the Grand Canal bordered with oldĀ  and richly decorated palaces that evoke the splendour of the ancient Maritime Republic. St. Mark Square, with the “Basilica” full of mosaics and domes, the Doge’s Palace, the maze of lanes dotted with shops and artisan shops, churches, museums and even the most hidden small squares. Another place listed as a UNESCO is the historic center of VERONA, a unique example of integration between Renaissance, Medieval and Roman architectures. Symbolic monuments of the city are the romantic Juliet’s balcony, made world famous by the tragedy of Shakespeare and the Arena, which turns into a spectacular open air opera stage during the summer.

PADUA, the city of culture par excellence, offers visitors many attractions, from the “Basilica of St. Anthony” to the wonderful Scrovegni Chapel with frescoes by Giotto. Its sixteenth-century Botanical Gardens, rich in medicinal herbs is also a World Humanity Heritage.

But there are many other surprises that the region offers to its visitors in Belluno, Treviso, Rovigo.
Even the smallest towns are rich in history and culture: Bassano del Grappa with the Old Bridge built according to a plan by Palladio which binds its image to the epic deeds of the alpine troops during the Great War. Asolo, a fascinating medieval village; Possagno, dominated by the Museum of Canova; the walled cities Monselice, Montagnana and Castelfranco Veneto, just to name a few.
