Cittadella is a medieval walled town. I took a solo walking tour at the top of the wall, along the entire circumference of the city. There is even a moat surrounding the town.
View of inside the walled city and the Dolomite Mountains from the top of the medieval wall.

Located in Piazzola sul Brenta, near Cittadella. I found interesting the contrast between the front and back sides of the villa. The front is elaborately decorated, but the back is bare and looks unfinished. It cost so much money for this villa to be constructed, and so the back was left bare to save money.
This theater was built between 1817 and 1828 and was designed by James Bauto. The first performances were held in 1831 and have since continued on. It holds about 200 people. My friend and I attended our first Italian theater performance here, titled "Quattro Buffe Storie." It contained four acts - "Cece", "La Patente", "Domanda di Matrimonio," and "Fa Male Il Tabacco."
Green Village is just a gardening store here in the outskirts of Cittadella, but during the Christmas season, they open up a special wing for a darling "Christmas Village." My sweet French friend knew that I would love this, and surprised me by showing it to me! **It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...**
An old bus station that has been turned into a now popular local bar. I have enjoyed coming here with friends for "Spritz" (traditional aperitivo drink in the Veneto region).
