palladian villas Albego Al Sole is ideally located to visit two of the most famous Palladian Villas, Villa Barbaro and Villa Emo. Both villas are UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES and two attractions in the Veneto region you won't want to miss.
venice walking tour Just an hour away from Asolo is the legendary city of Venice. We will meet our local guide in Piazzale Roma for a customized tour of this iconic city. You will be provided plenty of time to explore the magnificent sights, sounds, smells and food of Venice. As they say, "Wherever you are in Venice is exactly where you want to be."
prosecco bike tour and wine tasting The Veneto region is world famous for its wine, particularly Prosecco, local sparkling white wine - and what better way to explore the wineries and trattorias than by bicycle. This area also produces red wines, such as merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. Our bike tour is customized according to your needs: difficulty level, length of course and slopes. Local wineries are open for tastings, tours and wine sales. Many of these wineries are close to each other with the opportunity to spend the day immersed in local tradition and the discovery of beautiful places. The vineyards from which these fine bubbles are born extend from the hills of Asolo to Valdobbiadene and Conegliano.
montegrappa Just a 30-minute drive from Asolo, is Monte Grappa. Following one of the trails leading to the top of the mountain, you will be taken aback by breathtaking scenery and can visit the historic monument to the soldiers of the First World War. Lunch is served in a local "Malga" (a farmhouse typical to the area) where the owners serve the simple local food such as cheese, cold meats and homemade pasta. Once you have reached the top of Monte Grappa you can visit the monument to the soldiers of the First World War.
