The Home of Grappa
The Italian town of Bassano del Grappa is know for inventing the spirit grappa, traditionally served as an after meal drink. It's made from the discarded grape seeds, stems and stalks of the grape vines. Today the town has a thriving tourist industry partly drawn by a covered, wooden bridge, it's very own Ponte Vecchio.
The view from the bridge is beautiful, even on a chilly and blustery day like the day I was there.
The city square or "piazza" is surrounded by historic buildings. The one on the left has a gorgeous clock on it.
It's a beautiful little town, well worth a visit.
