You can visit Asolo on public transportation...it takes a bit of time, but it's worth it. This trip would come under the heading of 'it's about the journey AND the destination'. Across from the train station in Bassano del Grappo there is a news kiosk that sells round trip tickets to Asolo, but the stop is actually called Ca' Vescovo (look for this direction on the bus signage). It cost €4,50 round trip on the CTM line and you catch the bus a little further beyond the news stand (still in front of the train station). The buses run back and forth about every 2 hours in the summer and the last bus from Ca' Vescovo departs at 5p. The bus ride from Bassano is all uphill via a lovely, twisting, country road and takes approximately 30 minutes -- depending on how many stops they make along the route.
From Ca' Vescovo (end of line) you can either wait for the ZEN shuttle (€1 each way pay onboard) to take you up the hill (this is scheduled about every 35 minutes, but it's kind of erratic) or you can take a lovely trail to the top where the old city (Asolo Centro Storico) is located. I recommend the walk (see my post on that). And also allow time to tour around Bassano del Grappa (approx. 15 minute walk from the train to center) as it's really a lovely town too.
