Taking the winding road to the top of the hill where Asolo is nestled, you get already a glimpse of the elegant villas huddled behind tall stone walls, while the hilly landscape reveals itself more and more.
Enjoy this picturesque medieval town, stroll the piazza’s and curving streets lined up with little boutiques, take in its architecture, churches, and old walls adorned with faded frescoes.
Culture lovers can admire some historic sites too, such as the 13th castle of Queen Cornaro which is now a theatre, the 9th-century tower high above the town and the old city walls on the hill as you walk up to the tower. Or visit the splendid medieval Pretorio Castle which was originally built in the 10th-11th centuries. The balconies dotted around the castle open marvelous bird’s-eye views over the rooftops of Asolo…
Browse the many shops with homemade products such as Asolo’s local cake called pinza (a dense body richly stuffed with pieces of apple, currants and dried figs), fresh bread made on wood-fired ovens or some of the best salami.
