The town of Arcole is known worldwide for a battle that marked one of Napoleon Bonaparte’s most important victories and that effectively sanctioned the end of the Republic of Venice. A centre dedicated to industry and agriculture, it gives its name to the DOC Arcole and the famous Veronese asparagus.
