Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

Although Bassano is quite famous and an important industrial hub, it is a bit tricky to reach because it is far from the motorways. The best thing you can do is taking the A22 motorway, exit at Trento – SS Valsugana and then follow the Valsugana until Bassano. You can also take the A4 motorway, exit at Padova Ovest or the A31 and exit at Dueville. If you're driving from Treviso airport you'd better stay on the SR53 to Cittadella and then turn onto the SS47 to Bassano.

By plane[edit]

The closest airports are in Treviso, Venice and Verona. From there you need to get a car or continue by bus and/or train.

By train[edit]

Travellers will find that train is probably the easiest way to get to Bassano. The town is connected to Venice and Padova.

Get around[edit]

The old town is quite small and can be easily explored on foot. Bassano has also a bike sharing service which is very useful if you want to spend a few hours visiting the area around the town's center.
