Asolo was defined by Giosuè Carducci as "The City of a Hundred Horizons" and is listed among the hundred most beautiful villages of historical interest in Italy (I Borghi più belli d’Italia). History knows Asolo as a flourishing Roman centre for both agricultural and commercial activity, and the domain of famous dynasties, such as those of the Ezzelini and the Scaligeri families. It was later ruled by the Venetians, until the Napoleonic era left its mark.
Celebrated personalities, such as Caterina Cornaro, Eleonora Duse, Robert Browning and Ernest Hemingway have dedicated works and been inspired by Asolo, which is now known across the world for its riches.
The Rocca di Asolo is a 12th century fortress which preserves its thousand-year history in every nook and cranny. The walls which branch off from the fortress gently enclose Asolo, city of art, history and culture, as well as food and wine.
The typical local cuisine has been strongly influenced by the Serenissima, and its focus now finds its identity in Prosecco, a wine which enhances typical dishes and even moments for meditation.
Its biodiversity represents one of the main factors which makes Asolo the exclusive land that it is.
