    Asolo have several local traditional cake, you can taste them in town, just look around and you will find differen bakery and delicatessen.
    I reccomend to try "Pinza" a traditional cake that used to be made by peasants, so it is a "poor" food as they made it with the few ingredients they had. Nearly every family would have its own secret recipe but mainly it is made of different flour (part corn, part wheat etc), rasins, dry fig, walnut, fennel seeds, cooked in a rectangular pan, now in the oven but in the past under the ash of the fireplace.
    It is NOT a dietetic food, this is for sure, but it is also suppose to be eat in small portion :-)

    Another local specialty is pickel, made with local vegetables.

    Antichita Arredi D' Arte (Antichi E Moderni): Good Place to Buy Quality Murano Glass

    Murano Glass Vase

    Among the elegant shops inAsolo is the lovely little shop run by mother and son called "Antichita Arredi D'Arte" (Antichi E Moderni). The name implies that it is an antique store, but it also sells art and modern pieces as well.

    The store carries a wonderful array of Murano glass by famous glass makers.

    My husband, Allan, saw some of the pieces in the window, and he went inside; after discussion, he purchased one of the deep red vases (the smaller one) for our daughter Jill.

    He packaged it quite nicely and included all the literature about the artists. The vase is signed by the artist.

    In addition, the shopkeeper's mother gave Allan a lovely little book in English about Asolo.

    What to buy: The best item to buy here would be something in Murano Glass with an artist's signature. It is much cheaper than in Venice or on the Island of Murano.

    What to pay: Murano Glass is quite expensive so expect to pay 100+ Euro.
