We’d heard about the Christmas market in Bassano del Grappa, so, this week, we decided on a mini adventure back to the town I blogged about on 30th May. As usual, we parked in the Viale dei Martiri then wandered down this side street passing a the window of a bakery so well-decorated it could have been a fashion store.
Wooden huts lined the centre of the Piazza Garibaldi, the first selling figurines for Christmas Cribs, or presepe A stall selling all sorts of goodies caught our eye, and we treated ourselves to a bottle of extra virgin olive oil.
or some Pecorino cheese…
The Cannoli in the Pasticceria Siciliana went down a treat.
We walked them off has we headed past another side street
to get some panettone
We wanted to have a ride on the carrousel in the Piazza Libertà, but it had already closed for the night.
Victor and I will be visiting our son in London over Christmas, and won’t be back here until the New Year. This will be my last post of 2013. I wish you all a blessed holiday season and every happiness in 2014.
