The pesky tourists and I took the slow regional train to Bassano del Grappa today. The weather was lovely, and Bassano, as always, was charming.
The river water was clean and still, with lots of trout swimming in it.
We ate lunch at the place you can see across the river, the one with the yellow umbrellas. We ate … trout.
The sign says “It’s forbidden to trample the dreams.”
Guess what we found? A pissota!
The tourists enjoyed the view from the bridge.
This Alpinisto is either bidding his sweetheart hello or goodbye. I hope it was the former.
Huh! Window shutters can come in other colours aside from green.
And, other shapes aside from a wide rectangle.
Some glimpses of the architectural details in Bassano del Grappa.
We discovered this is the private home of a local business man. We watched as his car was lowered via an elevator in the driveway, into his underground garage.
We also visited the memorial on Monte Grappa. This will be the subject of a separate post.
My apologies for the long period of silence. We’ve had a few problems with the internet provider!
