Vicenza1h 30′

Vicenza is known as the city of Palladio – who created numerous works of architecture there – and is one of the most important places of art not only in the Veneto region. It is in fact a destination for cultural tourism with flows from all parts of Italy and also from abroad. The city has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Palladian Basilica, rebuilt from 1549 onwards, is the most famous public building.

South-west of Vicenza is the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Monte Berico, to which two apparitions of the Blessed Virgin are linked: the first on 7 March 1426, the second on 1 August 1428.
A tasting of the typical dish is a must: baccalà alla vicentina.

Trieste1h 30′

Trieste, the city of Umberto Saba and Italo Svevo, is a crossroads of cultures and religions.
The Miramare Castle, which overlooks the Gulf of Trieste, a few kilometres north of the city, is marvellous. It was built at the behest of Maximilian of Habsburg, Archduke of Austria and emperor of Mexico, and was later home to Duke Amadeus of Aosta.

Also, visit the Grotta Gigante (Giant Cave), which opens onto the Carso Triestino, the plateau behind Trieste. The spectacle is impressive due to the exceptional proportions of the cavity and the clever lighting that highlights all that nature has created.

Verona2h

Verona is situated on the Adige River, some thirty kilometres east of Lake Garda. The Basilica of San Zeno in Verona is considered one of the masterpieces of Romanesque architecture in Italy. Why not visit the famous Arena, the most important open-air opera house in the world.

Visit the ‘balcony of Romeo and Juliet’ that inspired the famous Shakespearean tragedy. Taste the famous Veronese Pandoro, a typical Christmas cake now known all over the world.

Grotte1h 15′

The Caglieron Caves are located in Breda di Fregona, in the province of Treviso. The length of the circular route is about 1 km and the estimated visiting time is about one hour. You can admire the splendid natural gorge and, as you proceed, walk along it on footbridges that are suspended in places. Due to the considerable limestone content of the water, it is redolent with formations of large concreted surfaces, stalactites and stalagmites, of the most varied shapes and colours.

In the most illuminated areas, the presence of travertine is remarkable, with alternating mosses and other plant residues. Inside the artificial cavities, there are some sections of tunnels that can be explored by cavers. Given the constant temperature in the deeper parts of the caves, and the gradual decrease in light, a series of micro-environments of considerable botanical and zoological interest can be observed.
