CASTELFRANCO itself has medieval walls and the cathedral boasts an altar piece by
Giorgione, the renaissance painter who was born here in about 1478. In the immediate vicinity you can see the Palladian villas at MASER and FANZOLO as well as visit the hill-top village of ASOLO, famous for its connections with the poet Robert Browning and in more recent times, the explorer Freda Stark.VENICE, jewel of the Adriatic, where you can enjoy the splendour of Saint Mark's Square or explore a maze of narrow streets, can be reached by train in less than an hour.

is just half an hour away by train and there you can see Roman remains, Giotto frescoes and Saint Anthony's Cathedral, a shrine for pilgrims from all over the world. TREVISO, the provincial capital, deserves a visit and is well connected to Castelfranco by road and rail. It's also easy to reach VICENZA, birth place of the Venetian architect Palladio and BASSANO DEL GRAPPA, with its famous wooden bridge over the River Brenta and superb views of the nearby mountains.For a day trip we recommend a visit to the DOLOMITE MOUNTAINS or the seaside at JESOLO.
