Like a Tuscan hill town dropped at the foot of the Dolomites, it is a very well-preserved, walled medieval town, with nice architecture, shops, restaurants.

The town does not appear in many English guide books, though we noticed a number of German speaking (German and Austrian) tourists.
It is linked to Treviso and Bassano by regular buses.
Some notable writers have spent time in Asolo, including poet Robert Browning who titled one of his volumes "Asolondo".
This is an Italian verb coined after the town, meaning "to partake in pleasurable aimlessness". I think we're all good at that.
