La Città dei cento orizzonti (The city of a hundred horizons) — Giosuè Carducci, Italian poet
Known as the ‘Pearl of Veneto’, Asolo is considered one of the most beautiful places in Italy. This small, picturesque medieval town is nestled among the hills near Treviso, northwest of Venice.
Asolo is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypress-spiked hills, with the occasional villa in the renaissance style visible through the fir trees. On a clear day, and with enough elevation, you can make out the Venetian lagoon shimmering on the horizon.
In the town itself the faded frescoes, quiet piazzas and well-worn streets assimilate effortlessly with the surrounding landscape, giving the impression that they have always co-existed.
The cities of Treviso, Venice, Padua, Vicenza and Verona are all within striking distance.
