Asolo ~ The Pearl of Veneto

For the longest time I have been wanting to go and explore Asolo. So many people have told me it’s one of the most charming cities in the Province of Treviso..

Asolo is known as “The pearl of Treviso” and I must admit that after spending the morning exploring this quaint town, I too agree.

Here are some photos of my adventure in Asolo.

I think exploring towns is best in the low season.. We went in the Winter and there was barely anyone around.. We had Asolo all to ourselves. And the weather couldn’t have been any better.

Gorgeous day!



Smallest intersection lights that I have ever seen.. How could I not take a photo of them?


Old mailbox that is still used today.. Some things never change.

First mushrooms of the season


What’s your favorite dish to make with mushrooms?

I love polenta with funghi or Risotto with funghi.

Funghi of course is mushroom in Italian!

Breakfast in Italy


Good morning everyone,

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I went to some of my favorite cities in Veneto but more on that later.

For now let’s talk about Breakfast in Italy.

Breakfast in Italy usually consists of a brioche (croissant) and an espresso. There are an assortment of brioche. Brioche filled with chocolate, Nutella, apricot jam, cream, apple and plain with nothing inside (vuota).

Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of having a shot of espresso as you can have any drink imaginable, café lungo, cappuccino, latte macchiato, macchiatone, ect.. Sometimes, if you’re lucky the barista will draw a design in your drink of choice.

After all the best coffee is in Italy.

Lastly, it’s quite normal to have our breakfast in a bar standing up ( no such thing as personal bubble in Italy) amongst others or if you’re not in a hurry sitting down also but it’s more common standing up.

So, what would you order for breakfast in Italy?

I always take a latte macchiato deca with a brioche with either cream or vuota. Depends on my mood, I guess. Haha!


Granita ITALIA


Nothing more refreshing than granita on a warm summer day!!

You can chose from menta (mint) sorbetto limone (lemon) or anguria (watermelon)

Love the colors of Italy!


Wine tasting in Valdobbiadene

One of the perks about living in Treviso is that the home of Prosecco aka Valdobbiadene is only a quick 30 minute trip by car from my home.

We decided to go back to our favorite agriturismo Le Mesine for a Sunday lunch surrounded by vineyards.


After a delicious and filling lunch, we decided to go wine tasting in the hills of Prosecco! Most wineries in Valdobbiadene are free of charge. But remember to always check ahead of time. Goes as so, if you like the wine, you buy a bottle. Simple as that!

I mean is there simply anything better than sipping on a refreshing glass of Italian sparkling white vino while looking over this panorama?
