Touted as the crown jewel of Italy's Treviso Province, Asolo is home to the intimate and charming Albergo Al Sole. Housed in a freestanding 19th-century building with shuttered-clad windows and the occasional jutting terrace, you will enjoy the incredible town views as well as excellent service and charming accommodations. The 23 guestrooms and suites are spacious and wonderfully appealing, bridging the charm of the centuries past with the modern amenities expected from today's travelers. The stylish bathrooms, with their pedestal tubs and shiny chrome fixtures, are equally large and cloaked in beautiful Italian tiles with intricate details.
While Asolo has no shortage of fabulous ristorantes, you need not venture past the lobby doors. The hotel's Terrace restaurant is a private retreat with an excellent menu, complete with outdoor living room and savory views. You can also learn the art of Italian cooking with culinary lessons right on the premises at Las Terrazza Restaurant. The appeal of Albergo Al Sole, besides its romantic allure, is its enviable town center location. With a setting just a stone's throw from breathtaking Venice, Asolo is known for its stunning villas, manicured gardens and narrow, arcade-laden streets. It is also the hub for Italian antiquities with dealers displaying their wares the second Sunday of each month. Fill your days by sipping espresso in the market square, a lovely destination that is embellished with an ancient fountain, arched doorways and lovely porticos - or venture into Venice to shop for Murano glass or leather goods. Time spent in Asolo and its surrounding areas is definitely time spent well.
