The town of Arcole is known all over the world for a battle that marked one of the most important victories of Napoleon Bonaparte 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.
