Fascinating spot: The Shoe Museum
Montebelluna had a thriving footwear industry thanks to its proximity to Montello (a source of wood) and Bassano del Grappa (which is renowned for its leather). It played a key role in the town’s history and it is celebrated in Italy’s only footwear museum, which is located in the 16th century Villa Binetti.
