When tourists think of Veneto, they immediately think of Venice. Yet, if you haven't visited small, lovely towns like Asolo in this region, I invite you to do so the next time you travel there. Called "The Pearl of the Province of Treviso" and also "The City of a Hundred Horizons" for its medieval hilltop setting, Asolo is also known for the production of the exquisite, sweet, sparkling Prosecco wine.
Laney Sachs, owner of Ortensia Blu Tours (www.ortensiabluitalianadventures.com) knows this region very well. It's here that she holds "Taste of the Veneto Tour" during the Prosecco harvest and where tourists are accommodated at a 5-star hotel "Al Sole" (Under the Sun). The next time you visit Veneto, don't just visit Venice, but explore smaller, lovely towns like Asolo and enrich your travel experience. Laney's next trip there is scheduled for September 16, 2017.
From Laney's first trip to Italy almost 20 years, it was love at first sight. Italy soon became a huge part of her life and with each visit, her passion grew. Over the years of travel, she has met wonderful friends who introduced her to incredible places. And these friends and experiences are what brought her to share this passion with Ortensia Blu Italian Adventures. On ortensiablu.com, Laney sells olive oil from her friends’ frantoio (olive press) in Lake Garda, ceramics from Deruta and table linens from Tuscany. She has taken her love and incredible experiences in Italy and put them in this exceptional off the beaten path tour.
