Green meadows and dense woods denote the peacefulness of a still intact landscape: that of the Sette Comuni in the province of Vicenza. Asiago is its chief town and its name is linked to the PDO branded cheese of the same name, a delicacy for true connoisseurs.
It is worth visiting the Military Memorial of Leiten in the town, which gathers together the Italian and Austro-Hungarian victims of the First World War, and the Astrophysical and Astronomical Observatory. Do not forget to appreciate the authentic flavours of this land by treating yourself to a visit to the many mountain cottages and the characteristic Alpine refuges.
Asiago is the perfect place for your summer holiday for families and for those who love staying in the midst of nature, away from mass tourism. It’s easy to fall in love with these places where the daily rhythms are slow, still influenced by ancient traditions. In summer everything is guest-friendly, who find many opportunities for fun: hundreds of miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking, equestrian centres, an 18-hole golf course, swimming pools, tennis courts.
When the soft white layer covers the landscape Asiago is transformed into the realm of cross country skiing fans with more than 500 kilometres of pistes that cut through the whole plateau. But there is also room for those who prefer to embark on exciting descents and for snowboard enthusiasts, for those who love ice skating, for those who simply want to walk in nature with snowshoes and for those who want to have fun like a child riding a little snow sleigh.
