Subject: Re: Venice to Lake Garda
barbara wouldn't miss Bassano del Grappa for anything. Well, no other small town in the area. Brilliant Paladio bridge across the river (built of timber), stunning little town built up the hill from the river, but just fabulous to cross the bridge, walk a little way down stream, and then out onto the gravel bed of the river, to look back upstream at the town, bridge and mountains behind.

Then again, I wouldn't miss Vicenza either, for the wonderful Paladio buildings, and the Theatre in particular. It is right on the motorway, easily accessed from Bassano, and you can then use the motorway to run west to Lake Garda. cheers Gavin (Sydney, Aus.)
