Monselice (Veneto)

Monselice is a town located in northeastern Italy, in the Veneto region, in the province of Padua. It is about 20 kilometres southwest of the city of Padua, at the southern edge of the Euganean Hills. The modern town lies in a wide valley between the Montericco, elevation 312 metres (1,024 ft), and the Rocca, elevation 110 metres (360 ft), hills (part of the Euganean Hills). The oldest part of the town lies around the Rocca hill. In medieval times the Rocca was heavily fortified with five girdle walls that are partially still visible today. Important points for tourists are the central square Piazza Mazzini with the medieval Torre Civica (Civic Tower) and the Palazzo del Monte di Pietà (Public Pawn Palace). This building hosts the local touristic promotion board (Pro Loco), that provides information for visits to the town's historical attractions.

Recipes From Veneto

Recipes

Who knew giblets could make something this good? Though this sauce is made of oft-discarded poultry parts, it’s a refined delicacy with deep, rich flavor. 

Recipes

Wrap your hands around a bowl of pasta e fasoi, Venetian-style pasta, and bean soup, rich and nourishing and as murky as La Serenissima herself but much better-tasting.

Recipes

A beloved classic from Venice, this dish is perfect for spring when fresh peas abound and can easily be adapted for vegetarians.

Recipes

Bigoli (or bigoi in the Veneto dialect) are a thick, spaghetti-like pasta typical of the Veneto and eastern Lombardy.

What others are saying about Veneto

Buongiorno,

@jcondemi asks:

Anybody has experience trying to improve the energetic rating of a condo or house? Mine is rated G (lowest) and I wonder what renovations to do first, to achieve a better energetic rating. Somebody suggested adding a "wall" in front of the wall that faces the outside.

@jcondemi asks:

Does anybody have recommendations for general contractors in the Treviso area? I would like to renovate an apartment I bought (install new double-pane windows, redo kitchen, add air conditioning, etc)
