If you ever drive to Bassano Del Grapa, just walk around the small streets and Cross this very old bridge! Fantastic and now renewed !

Nice bridge. You have to visit with a guided tour, otherwise you miss the main aspects. At the end, there's a Grappa shop where you can enjoy thousands of grappa at decent price or you can just try a bit for free

The bridge was under extensive repair at the time we visited. The guide was eager to tell us that this was Palladio's famous wooden bridge. What we were not told was that it had been blown up in WW2 and this was almost a complete...More

This is NOT the same bridge that Palladio designed and constructed in 1569 - it has been through several incarnations!. But historically speaking, it is of great value as the only remaining extant example of Palladio's work beyond that of the magnificent Villas in the...More
