One hour by car to the quiet life

If you are visiting Venice, Padova or Vicenza you might tire of the busy lifestyle and wish to spend some time relaxing in a peaceful village. Asolo could be your answer.
This village perched on the side of a tall hill, has many things to offer, two castles, a nice piazza, great restaurants, and some small streets for walking and taking photos of this village.
Asolo is about one hour from Padova by car. Parking is found at the bottom of the hill with a convenient bus that takes you up for one euro. You can also find parking above, but this will be more costly.
Walking from the lower parking lot is a bit more serious kind of walking uphill, so if you are not in shape for this, don't plan on it.
Centered around the piazza are many restaurants, and along the street coming up the hill are some nice shops. Beware of gourmet food that does not have a price on it, always ask...how much?

Along the piazza

We visited Asolo when they were having a flea market, and this is a photo from that day. It was not a large market and we saw just about everything in just under an hour.
The bakery on the corner has gelato and features some very tasty baked goods.
We did not eat in restaurants here, instead we went to Monfumo, a village north of Asolo. You will find the tip for this restaurant listed under Asolo since it is very close.
Incidentally there is a well know slow food restaurant in Pagnano, which is also 5 minutes away from Asolo. For this ristorante you will need reservations in most cases.
You will soon see a tip for this restaurant listed under Asolo.
