Asolo

Overview

Introduction

An artists town with Venetian roots, scenic Asolo, Italy, sits on a panoramic hillside location overlooking trees and small farms 25 mi/45 km northwest of Venice.

Walk the narrow streets to see the flower boxes that decorate each house. Visit the museum (it contains some writings of Robert Browning, who spent his last autumn there), nearby aristocratic villas, especially the Villa Barbaro at Maser and the Villa Cipriani Hotel, a beautiful 16th-century building—even if you don't stay there, drop by and visit it.

Also see the nearby Brion Tomb, designed by a well-known modern architect, Carlo Scarpa. We suggest a stay of one night in Asolo.
