The Fabulous Town of Asolo
Near to Venice
you will find one of the Veneto's best kept secrets, the little town of Asolo, known as the " city of a hundred horizons."
It is quite incredible that so few of the millions of
tourists that pass through Venice
each year are even aware of this little gem on their doorstep.
make that mistake, if you visit Venice take a day trip, better still
stay a night or two here and explore the town and the lovely surrounding

These are the Top Sights to See in Asolo:
The 13th castle of Queen Cornaro, which is now a theatre, then there is the 9th century tower high above the town and the old
city walls on the hill as you walk up to the tower.
A few others of note include the Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, which dates back in parts to the 10th century, and the 16th century villas on the edge of town.
Getting to Asolo from Venice
By car is easiest but if you don’t have a car then you can catch the train from Venice to
and then the bus from Treviso to Asolo.
The train to Treviso
from Venice runs every twenty minutes or so and takes about thirty
minutes. The bus from Treviso will take about the same time.
