Treviso Travel Guide

Introduction

Treviso is a city rich in frescoes, a tradition that began in the Middle Ages and has continued into present day, earning it the nickname, "the painted city." There are numerous buildings here, particularly in its Calmagiorre district, with façades adorned with magnificent frescoes, many of them the work of mid-14th-century artist Tommaso da Modena, who left his imprint on not only the façades of assorted edifices, but on the interior walls of several churches as well. Besides the frescoes, however, Treviso is also a city of canals, set upon the River Sile, with willow-fringed waterways branching from the river and weaving through the city, occasionally crossed by an old stone bridge or two, bestowing upon the city its other moniker, "Little Venice." The city itself is quite lively, with a lovely old town center, bustling with activity and well worth strolling around, with high-end shops and boutiques tucked away in centuries-old arcaded buildings. There are other historic vestiges here as well, including remnants of the city's medieval defensive walls, and a colorful market to boot. The city, by the way, is also home to the Benetton fashion family, which maintains a high profile here. Ultimately, though, it must be fair to say that Treviso is a little gem of a town, off the beaten path and thus overlooked by tourists, yet one that merits a visit, all but a stone's throw from Venice.

Location

Treviso is situated in the Veneto, in the province of Treviso, which is often referred to as La Marca Trevigiana, or simply La Marca.
