Asolo is a small village up the hills in Veneto. It is called ‘The City of 100 Horizons’, because of the spectacular views . Contained within the ancient walls that branch off from the 12th century fortress, in every corner it preserves testimonies of its thousand-year old history. What did strike my senses is the elegance of the village and its inhabitants. No cars are allowed in the old town. We did walk up and down visiting the fortress, the old palaces and a typical food boutique.
All types of fresh ravioli and pasta, cakes and delicatessen were displayed in old counters. We took some special cheese and the ‘pinza’, a typical cake from Asolo.
