One of the most beautiful villages in Italy and the holder of an Italian Touring Club Orange Flag
Plants from all over the world, royal residences and breathtaking art
As part of the “Borghi Più Belli D’Italia” club, Asolo has officially been named one of the most beautiful towns and villages in Italy.
In addition, it has been awarded an Orange Flag by the Italian Touring Club for its outstanding hospitality and tourist services. A key part in its identity is played by three great women: Freya Stark, Caterina Cornaro and Eleonora Duse. Visit the Castle of Caterina Cornaro, the Queen of Cyprus: the only sovereign who kept her crown even under the rule of the Republic of Venice. Next, move on to the Fortress. Both buildings stand tall over the little town and have breathtaking views! In the gardens of Villa Freya, you can get lost among the numerous species of flowers and trees that former owner Freya Stark brought back as mementos from her many journeys. Make sure you also visit Villa Contarini degli Armeni, which is one of the most famous homes in Asolo.
