Asolo has one of the most charming town centres of Veneto. Built upon paleo-venetian establishments, thanks to an optimal climate, it soon became a notable roman centre, municipium since the first century B.C. It is mentioned by Pliny the Elder and Tholomeus. In the Roman period, it was enriched with an aqueduct, a theatre, baths, and a road (the Aurelian Way). Asolo was later made Episcopal seat until 969 A.C., and allocated to the Treviso Parish. It was often conquered (by Ezzelino of Romano, the Da Camino, the Scaligero and the Carrarerisi), and in 1338 it became part of the Serenissima Republic of Venice. Asolo hosted Caterina Cornaro’s Kingdom, and many relevant figures fell in love with it, such as Eleonora Duse, Giosue’ Carducci, Igor Stravinskij, Antonio Canova, and Ernest Hemingway, up to more contemporary figures like Carlo Scarpa, De Pisis, Alberto Sordi, Monica Vitti, Gian Antonio Stella and many others. Asolo’s unique charm arises from its medieval features, its ancient walls overlooked by the Rocca, its suggestive streets and porches with gothic arches, the ancient buildings and houses with picturesque balconies and fresco paintings from the past ages. Most recommended attractions: the Caffe’ in the main square, a meeting place for scholars and celebrities, has been the shooting location of well-known movies; the Castello della Regina (Queen’s Castle) with Teatro Duse, the Cathedral and the City Museum.
