Orange Flag of the Italian Touring Club
The name of the village derives from the Latin asylum, refuge, Asolo. Indeed, it has been a popular destination for many illustrious holidaymakers, from Eugenio Montale toRobert Browning, from Queen of Cyprus Caterina Cornaro who held her court of humanists and poets there until Eleonora Duse who lived there and wanted to be buried there.
After an intense period of recovery and restoration of some monuments of great cultural and historical value, the village now appears revitalised. Worth seeing: the Municipal Museum, the theatre and the Rocca, an imposing construction for defensive purposes that simultaneously dominates and guards the entire settlement. Between the porticoes that adorn thehistoric centre, there are cafés and taverns that emanate truly inviting aromas.
Among the typical products of the village, high quality and indigenous, stand out the Pedemontana del Grappa oil and Morlacco cheese.
