From Treviso Airport to Venice
I will be travelling to Treviso Airport to mainly visit Venice.
Can someone help me with travelling options?
Would like to know if I can travel by train or bus to Venice (up to the water buses) Anyone knows the duration or perhaps some website where I can check for trains, time tables and prices?
Many many thanks
Re: From Treviso Airport to Venice
I did this same trip this summer. There is a bus that goes from Treviso to Venice. (Where you can pick up the Vaparetto, or water bus.) I just asked about it at the airport - it was pretty easy. About a 30 min - 1 hour ride.
Travel Tips for Treviso
The old core turn into the art gallery
I've revisit Treviso this November 2006 and found city center decorated with lots of multicoloured plastic statues representing various animals. The red coloured huge dogs keep guard over couple of small squares, the bears, owls and other species stands in the balconies or watching from the windows, while the dolphins are swimming over passengers in the streets. The whole city center looks lovely now and not to mentioned that the kids are enthusiastic.
Walk along the lovely canals
There are several canals in Treviso and there is another stunning scene every time you turn a corner. You might see ducks, frescoes buildings, water wheels, bridges or gorgeous architecture. There are so few people that you will feel you have the place to yourself. Here are some pics I took along the canals.
THE CHIESA DI SAN NICOLÒ -History and Exterior
I'd initially thought that I'd arrived at the Duoma (The Cathedral) due to the vast size of this church, and also because I'd read articles complaining about the front of the Duoma being a Car Park.
I'd arrived at San Nicolo from its car park, where a rather harrassed attendant was directing cars, and collecting payment.
The Chiesa di San Nicolò dates from the beginning of 14th century and was built by the Dominican fraternity.
This was mainly funded and encouraged by Friar Niccolò Boccalino’s legacies, (He was better known as "Pope Benedetto XI". )
The Church was located west of the centre of Treviso, at the point where the most urbanized area ended and the uncultivated lands began.
Construction of the church was delayed, due to two significant events. Firstly, by the collapse of a bell tower, which demolished most of underlying chapels, and then by The Plague, which affected Treviso in the first half of 14th century.
Later, the Church was damaged by enemy bombs on the night of 7th April 1944.
Apparently, The Chiesa di San Nicolò 'represents a moment of transition between the strong Romanesque style and the Gothic style'.
Its red brick exterior is quite simple, but also quite imposing.
Open 07.00-12.00 and 15.30-19.00
Piazza dei Signori
The core of the city life is the area delimited by Palazzo della Prefettura, Palazzo dei Trecento and Cal Maggiore called Piazza dei Signori.
The square took its name from Treviso's Palazzo della Signoria, located nearby, which was half of Palazzo del Podesta' of our days.
The square is today the favorite meeting place for both locals and visitors, during weekends interesting books markets and concerts being organized here.
"E dove Sile e Cagnan s'accompagna..." (Dante's "Paradiso", IX, 49).
The reason why Dante mentioned Treviso in his work was due to an interesting phenomenon that happens right in the place where Cagnan Grande meets Sile, the place where the Dante bridge stands today.
It seems that Cagnan's dark waters don’t mix immediately with Sile's clear waters and for a while they go together.
