The town of Vittorio Veneto has a special place in the memory of the Italian people. By a twist of fate, it was the site of the great victory of the Italians over the Austrians in October of 1918.
On this picture you can see the fragment of the old core of the town along the bank of the river Meschio.
"Old buildings in town centre."
Vittorio Veneto , town (1991 pop. 29,231), Venetia, NE Italy, in the Alpine foothills. It is a secondary industrial and commercial center and a spa. There, in Oct.-Nov., 1918, the Italians won a decisive victory over the Austrians, which led to the Austro-Hungarian surrender to Armando Diaz on Nov. 3.
"A river runs through it."
Not many places are this quiet at 1pm on a saturday afternoon.
"Back in Venice"
Cheating a bit here as i've added another Venice photo. Didn't actually go on a Gondola. The water buses are just as good at a fraction of the price.
