Asolo


Share
Defined by Giosuè Carducci as the city of a hundred horizons, the village is one of the most suggestive historical centers in Italy. Collected within the ancient walls that branch off from the fortress, a 12th century fortress, it retains evidence of its millenary history in every glimpse. A place of charm on the gentle hills of Asolo, Asolo was a destination for poets and writers, artists and travelers, who found inspiration and harmony here.

About the village

The origins of Asolo are lost in ancient times. Important crossroads for goods and livestocks, perfect point of transition between the Venetian plain and Belluno's Pre-Alps, it has always benefited from a great political, economic and cultural autonomy since Roman times. The amenities of the place then, perched on its gentle hills, did the rest.
Asolo became in the centuries an unmissable destination for artists and intellectuals, including Henry James and Eleonora Duse, just to name a few.

The history overlooks every corner of the streets: from the many and beautiful villas, private residences of famous people, to its castle, with its cut off tower (called Reata), which since 1489 hosted Caterina Cornaro, former Queen of Cyprus, and his entourage of artists, and which today is home to a new theater dedicated to Eleonora Duse;

From the fortress that dominates the village of Monte Ricco with the remains of the ancient Roman aqueduct (in dialect the Bot). And in addition to the history, the art of good living, the typical Venetian atmosphere that pervades the streets.

Romantic tranquility, peace of mind. Pubs, cafes, wine bars: placid places for the mind and the body, where you can enjoy a glass of Prosecco Asolo DOCG and a simple and genuine cuisine, according to the seasons and products that you can't find anywhere else.

Ancient traditions and local excellence. Some examples? White corn and Morlacco cheese; Bastardo cheese and Biso (pea) of Borso del Grappa; the dwarf beans of Levada and Monfumo apples; Maser cherries and honey of the Grappa area. Everything here is full of charm, history and culture. 'The city of a hundred horizons', as named by the poet Giosué Carducci.
