Trip Report Very short trip report -- Vittorio Veneto, Italy

A brief report about Vittorio Veneto, though little was seen here.

There are in fact two museums that deal with the big battle nearby here that ended World War I involvement for Italy. They are located in different parts of the town and not close by each other. Unfortunately, neither was visited.

One of these, which I've found referred to on the web as the Great War Museum, is located on a small piazza in the southwestern part of town, kitty-corner from a church. As best I can tell, it is fully focused on the battle. Its front porch area contains large shells, cannons, and anchors. Sorry to say, it's currently closed for renovation.

The other, called the Museo del Cenedese, is located in a lovely old area in the northern part of town, Piazza Flaminio. This apparently also contains paintings and non-battle related artifacts. Unfortunately, it's only open Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm, and we were not there then.

Fortunately, the visit was not a total loss. The folks I was traveling wanted to take a car up to the area (note that it's also possible to take a train to the town from Venice), and after discovering both museums were in fact closed, we drove the winding roads in the area. There are plenty of nice viewpoints along the way, lots of grape fields and other countryside delights to see.
