Looking upon the Italian town of Bassano, the majestic Monte Grappa mountain chain offers breathtaking views…
The mountain, towering from its 1700 meters on sea level, is a hotspot for active tourism attracting paragliding, cycling and hiking enthusiasts that choose this corner of Northern Italy for a healthy and sustainable holiday in contact with nature.
The mountain offers landscapes from another planet and is topped by a monumental compound remembering the fallen of world war one: Monte Grappa was in fact a key point of interest in the conflict that decided the fate of the newly born Italian state, back then opposing the Austro-Hungarian empire, so much as it was featured in the popular videogame series “Battlefield”.
Today, despite trenches and defensive structures still being visible, Monte Grappa is a very peaceful place and its visitors dwell inn visiting the “Malghe”, or mountain inns serving wine, cheese and cold cuts, locally produced according to the finest tradition.
Cows are brought in altitude during the summer and freely roam the mountain eating herbs and weeds that grow only here and which taste goes in the milk: the mountain’s “Morlacco” cheese is therefore a unique delicacy that cannot be bough in stores but only enjoyed up here, with a glass of good wine.
If you love nature and look for a relaxing holiday in the fresh air of the Italian mountains, a visit to Mount Grappa can be the right treat for you.
