- About The Experience
The beauty and culture of northern Italy are front and center at this lovely walk-up apartment, which is ideally located in an historic palazzo in the town square of Asolo. Linger over a cappuccino at the café below the apartment, visit the local museum, enjoy a wine tasting, or gaze at the views of the nearby castle amidst the apartment’s authentic 18th-century frescoes.
- Location Description
The apartment is located in the main square of the town of Asolo, in northern Italy. Often referred to as the “Pearl of Veneto,” this medieval village is rich in natural beauty and culture. On weekends the main square hosts events such as flea markets and open-air plays. The area has long attracted luminaries, including Gabriele D'Annunzio, Eleonora Duse, Robert Browning and Ernest Hemingway. At the end of the 1400s, it was home and prison to the Queen of Cyprus, Caterina Cornaro, for whom the local castle (open to the public) is named. Other notable sites include the 18th-century cathedral, the Civic Museum and Villa Scotti-Pasini in the city center. The town has many excellent restaurants, including Villa Cipriani, La Terrazza Al Sole, Hosteria Ca’ Derton and Osteria della Giarrettiera. The Colli Asolani wine road makes this a great place for food and wine aficionados, and for golf lovers, the nearby Asolo Golf Club has a beautiful 27-hole course, tennis courts and a fitness center. Possible day trips include Treviso, Padova, Venice, Vicenza and Verona.
