About The Experience
Known as the ‘town of 100 vistas’ for its panoramic hillside location, the medieval walled town of Asolo has long been a favorite of writers, including Earnest Hemmingway and Robert Browning. Asolo’s rare beauty is certain to inspire you, too! It’s said to be one of the loveliest villages in Italy!
Location Description
Villa Melissa is situated in a beautiful hilltop location within a short walk from the town center of Asolo. The medieval town is located in the Veneto region, which is Northeast Italy. You can explore Asolo’s Roman past and wander through a collection of paintings and Tintoretto portraits in the Museo Civico. You may also enjoy treasure hunting for antiques in Asolo’s famous monthly market, which takes over the town’s main center and surrounding streets. Don’t miss seeing the mesmerizing view from the Queen’s tower! Asolo is part of the national circuit of Città Del Vino (Wine Cities), and celebrates in August with special wine tastings of its first-class wines. Also of interest, the antiques market comes to life every second Sunday of the month.
