The charming countryside of Treviso


A day dedicated to Asolo, known as "the Pearl of the province of Treviso". Asolo was the home of the exiled 15th century Queen of Cyprus, Caterina Cornaro and a place of inspiration to artists such as Ernest Hemingway and Robert Browning.
Not far from Asolo is one of the villas included on the UNESCO World Heritage list, the magnificent Villa Barbaro in Maser, designed by Palladio and frescoed by Paolo Veronese. In its rooms the beautiful colors of the frescoes describe everyday life in the 16th century, as well as, allegories and the Greek Gods on Mount Olympus. The Villa is surrounded by hills and vineyards, from which its owners still produce a delicious wine.
