ASOLO and PROSECCO DAY TOUR
From Venice
2019
Enjoy the splendors of the enchanting beauty of Asolo, a town that has been visited by celebrities like
Marcello Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve, to name a few, and taste the beautiful array of local
wines (Colli Asolani wines) on a tour from Venice or Treviso. In the medieval town, located in a
fascinating landscape of hills, we’ll walk through the streets of the village where the workshops of the
craftspeople perfectly match the atmosphere of the Queen’s Cornaro Castle. This incredible fortress
with garden was the favorite retreat of the famous Eleonora Duse and Freya Stark.
Near Asolo is the beguiling Villa Barbaro, one of the best examples of Andrea Palladio’s
accomplishments. The Villa can be found in a beautiful scenery, an unforgettable blend of nature and
art with internal decoration by Paolo Veronese, full of allegories and symbolic scenes inspired by
mythology. Near Villa Barbaro, you will taste a selection of Asolo wines as well as sample typical
specialities like “cicchetti” cheese and local salami. We can also visit the Villa (entrance fee not
included).
The tour will continue where the best Italian prosecco is produced, straight from the source in
Valdobiaddene wine region. We’ll learn about the complex process of making real prosecco on a wine
tour, and taste several different types of the famous favorite.
