My place, if you arrive by car, is 20 minutes away from the A31 Highway (Thiene-Schio Exit).
If you arrive by public transportation it is only 5 minutes from the bus station and 8 minutes from the train station (Schio is connected to Vicenza every hour). Town center is 3 minutes walk and one of the nicest park in town (La Valletta) is only 2 minutes walk away.
Asiago is less than 1 hour drive, Venice is 1 hour and 15 minutes away.
Who likes mountain walking has countless opportunities.
