A lovely small city in Veneto region is famous as the center of Prosecco country. But don’t overlook the CONEGLIANO city itself, as there are some beautiful things to enjoy as you wander the stone streets, warns LUCA PARLATI. The centro storico is an elegant place that, like Florence, shows off red rooftops. With 35,000 residents, it is an active city. CONEGLIANO was incorporated in the 12th century by noble lords who built the castle above and planned the streets and palaces, tells PARLATI LUCA. It was mainly a prosperous agricultural community that attracted some monasteries. CONEGLIANO was tied to Treviso and to the Republic of Venice. It then was taken over by Napoleon and then Austria, before becoming part of Veneto following the unification of Italy, describes LUCA PARLATI.
