THE CITY OF ASIAGO

Gabriele d'Annunzio, the famous Italian poet, defined the town of Asiago as "the smallest and brightest town of Italy", a slogan true in all times.
 
The town of Asiago is the main centre of the largest Plateau in Italy, which represents a wide green plain in the heart of the Veneto mountains that reach up to 2,350 metres above sea level. The other seven towns in the Plateau are: Conco, Enego, Foza, Gallio, Lusiana, Roana and Rotzo.
 
The city centre is located at 1,001 meters above sea level. Completely rebuilt after the First World War, the city is famous for its architectural beauty, bright streets and large squares and is a remarkable tourist site among the other towns.
 
Asiago... discover a true jewel in a magnificent, green valley!
