Schio - holidays in „Little Manchester"

Schio is an absolute insider tip for Italy-lovers. Schio is one of the most productive industrial cities of the Veneto region. No one would ever expect that a vacation in an industrial city would be rewarding. But believe us, it is!

Since the 7th century Schio has been an important center in the fabrication of textiles. Schio even got the name "Little Manchester" because of the numerous modernizations in the manufacturing process. That's what makes Schio nearly Asiago so interesting for culture lovers. Everywhere in the city you can visit industrial monuments, which have turned into museums and exhibition centers during the last years. The "Della Rossi" manufactory or the "Fabbrica Alta" manufactory are just two examples.

Also worth visiting are the Francis Church, the Santa Maria in Valle Church, the San Antonio Church, the monastery of the Friars Minor Capuchin and the convent of the Canossiani.
