The medieval town of Vicenza is our starting point for this varied Walk through the celebrated Veneto region of Italy.
The opulence of the Venetian empire is contrasted with the trenches and tunnels of the First World War as we journey across alpine meadows, and through mountain villages and woods. We visit two of Palladio's magnificent villas and explore old Marostica, still surrounded by its ancient walls.
In the mountain resort of Asiago we taste the famous cheese; in Bassano we sample grappa at the Nardini distillery and cross the wooden Palladian bridge, Ponte degli Alpini.
