NERVESA DELLA BATTAGLIA

The area around Nervesa della Battaglia offers visitors a wealth of history, art and nature. It features such culturally and historically important sites as Saint Eustache Abbey, the many splendid villas built in centuries past by the Venetian nobility, and its numerous Great War monuments and memorials, like the Sacrario Militare War Memorial and the Sepulchral Chapel devoted to the memory of Italian fighter pilot, Major Francesco Baracca.

Nervesa has been home to painters and artists such as Tiepolo, Titian and Caravaggio, as well as scholars and writers such as Gaspara Stampa and Monsignor Giovanni della Casa, author of the famous Rules of Etiquette, in Italian the Galateo, overo de’ costumi.

The Montello offers scenic routes and trails for cycling enthusiasts and nature lovers, fascinating cave excursions, and a wide variety of local food and wine itineraries. Flanked by the Piave, the river Sacred to the Homeland, Nervesa’s strategic position meant that it was on the front lines for much of the First World War, thus ensuring forever its place in history.
