Why I love Asiago

Upon arriving in Asiago, I was amazed at the beauty of the local architecture from restaurants to the large square.

Each morning, I threw open the blinds at my hotel and marveled at the beauty of the city below me. After a bite to eat, I wandered the streets of the town with the sunshine warm on my face. Everyone I met offered smiles and kind greetings.

One afternoon, I strayed a little farther than usual and found myself at the Church of Saint Rocco. With its pale-brick exterior and prominent cross at the top, it only added to the natural beauty all around the area.

Each evening, I strolled around gardens with the Fountain of Faun. The sound of families and children's laughter was the perfect end to the day.

Where do locals go skiing in the area?

Locals enjoy skiing in the Gallio 2000 Melette, loacted approximately 8 kilometers from Asiago in Gallio, Italy. The area offers more than 60 ski lifts and is divided into 12 separate ski areas. Melette’s highest altitude is approximately 1,500 meters while the lowest is 1,000 meters.

Melette boasts over 15 ski runs totaling approximately 18 kilometers in length. The relatively low altitude of the Venetian Alps in this area generally provides shorter, more relaxing runs for skiers; thus, the area is more frequented by beginner and intermediate skiers. The area also offers snow-shoeing and cross country skiing routes.

Insider Tip: Visit Mellette on a weekday to avoid the longer lines for runs on the weekends.
