A COUNTRY OF RICH NATURE AND HISTORY

Taking just a few steps from the centre of Asiago city, you will find yourself in the depth of beautiful intact nature. In the surroundings of Asiago there are numerous villages, small towns and other beautiful places that still preserve their name in Cimbrian, the language spoken in this area in old times.
 
This is a wonderful land of meadows, lush pastures, pinewoods, and beech forests populated by a large variety of animals. In this environment you can witness how people still live and work according to old natural rhythms and also see the historical heritage of those who lived here before us.
