9 days in Italy : Monday ~ Bassano del Grappa

My family came to visit me back in September for 9 days. We had a full schedule of places to visit in Veneto region in just 9 days. First day, we all discovered Bassano del Grappa. 

By far is one of my favorite towns in Italy. 

Here are some photos from our day.

 This is probably one of my favorite photos! Love the flowers on the balcony.
 Doing what Italians do best… Apertivo time ~ 4 glasses of Prosecco, please!
