Among the items of artistic heritage are the altar pieces and frescoes in the Church of Giovanni Battista in Vinigo, a designated national monument controlled by the heritage authority La Sovrintendenza di Venezia. Vodo is also famous as the birthplace of G.P. Talamini, founder of Il Gazzettino, the Veneto region’s daily newspaper, whose house is in the main street of the town.
Vodo is a thriving hub of gastro-culture, a favoured destination for dedicated foodies.
Plenty of sports and leisure activities are available in this area. Italian and foreign mountain-bikers make a beeline for the cycle trail La Lunga Via delle Dolomiti and hikers can choose from a number of summertime hiking trails, some more challenging than others. A favourite winter activity is hiking on snow shoes with trails heading for the plains of Ciauta, the Talamini and Venezia Refuges, to Becco di Cuzze and many more besides. Some interesting hikes can be taken from the village of Vinigo, an easy one on fairly flat terrain leads to the old mill, or there are more demanding trails leading to the Galassi and Antelao refuges, linking with Altavia 4 and 5.
