The Albergo Al Sole boasts majestic views of the town and its strategic location means that it is ideal for exploring one of the most picturesque places in the world. Just a short distance from Venice and the Dolomites, it is in an area with a vast array of art exhibitions, churches, Palladian Villas and other artistic masterpieces surrounded by spellbinding countryside. There are also vineyards and wineries where you can taste the region’s finest wines.
Known as the Town with a Hundred Horizons due to its unique geographical location, Asolo has officially been named one of the most beautiful towns and villages in Italy by the “Borghi Più Belli D’Italia” club. Once known as the “garden of Venice”, it is found to the North of Treviso on the hills at the foot of Monte Grappa, in the heart of an area with a wealth of history, culture and food and wine traditions.
The Albergo Al Sole is part of the Prosecco Hills Business Network. It welcomes guests and helps them to discover a part of Veneto where you can visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The hills are home to works by some of Italy’s most famous artists, as well as internationally renowned culinary culture and wine production. They are ideal for sports lovers who enjoy hiking and cycling. They also make a great place to get away from it all and savour the unique experience of strolling through the vines amid a beautiful patchwork of colours.
An artistic and architectural masterpiece, Venice is the capital of the Veneto Region and one of the most visited cities in the world. A trip to this unique destination is always an exceptional experience. Go on a journey of discovery through its thousands of years of history, traditions and celebrations. People flock here from all over the planet for some of the oldest and most popular events of their kind in the world, including Venice Film Festival and Carnival. Then there is the Historical Regatta featuring traditional rowing boats, and the Festa del Redentore (Feast of the Most Holy Redeemer), when fireworks are reflected in the water by Saint Mark’s Square. History and culture are intertwined in the museums and historical buildings dotted across the city, which serve as exhibition venues during the Biennale.
The area is home to a number of masterpieces by Andrea Palladio, who was one of the most influential figures in the history of Western architecture. Asolo is just a few minutes from two of his creations that are definitely worth visiting: Villa Emo in Fanzolo di Vedelago and Villa Barbaro in Maser, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
From the hill where Asolo stands, it takes just 30 minutes to drive to a First World War site where you can see one of the most breathtaking views in the area. The triumphs of nature and humankind are summed up by the Ossuary at the top of Monte Grappa.
Spanning the Brenta River, the Ponte Vecchio is a construction steeped in refined, understated beauty that was designed by Andrea Palladio. Its eye-catching, towering appearance has made it into the most symbolic landmark of the city of Bassano del Grappa.
The legendary sculptor Antonio Canova was born in Possagno, which is just 8 km from Asolo. It is famous for its gallery (where scale models of the artist’s most famous works are on display) and the Temple that Canova designed and had built, which now serves as the town’s church.
