    Piccola Venezia

    by croisbeauty Written Mar 14, 2014
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Although the city is located deep in the mainland part of the Veneto, it deserve to be call Little Venice, as it is colloquially called. Through the center of the city flows the river Sile, which has a ricj aquifer. Because the city and its surroundings have always been an important producer of food, the great amelioration works have been done in the 17th century through which the watercourse of the river Sile was regulated. By the construction of two large canals the city has dramatically changed its appearance.

    Fondest memory: In Treviso there is no so many canals and bridges, churches and palaces are far more modest and less flamboyant, in urban canals does not pass a multitude of boats and gondolas, but unlike Venice the city has an genuine charm, harmony and idyllic beauty.....

    Calmaggiore

    by croisbeauty Updated Mar 10, 2014
    Calmaggiore
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Calmaggiore is the main street of "centro storico" (historic center) of Treviso, connecting Piazza del Duomo and Piazza dei Signori. Its name derives from the Latin word "cardo".
    The "cardo" was a north-south oriented street in Roman cities. The cardo, as integral component of the Roman city plannings, was lined with shops and vendors and served as an hub of economic life.
    Most Roman cities also had "decumanus maximus", an east-west oriented street that served as a secondary main street. The Forum was normally located at the intersection of the cardo and the decumanus. It is believed that decumanus could be identified as today's Via Martiri della Liberta, the intersection was therefore close to the Loggia de Cavalieri.

    Fondest memory: Calmaggiore is relatively short street but, as in the Roman times, it is full of shops, vendors and good pastry shops with the best ice-cream in Treviso.
    Trevigiani love their city and show it at every turn. The city center and its canals are conveniently decorated with ornaments that break the monotony. Most visitors love to see it.

    Fiume Sile

    by croisbeauty Written Mar 10, 2014
    Fiume Sile
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The resurgent springs of the River of Sile are near Vedelago, a small town north of Treviso. The river is only 95km long and it flows into the Venetian Lagoon at the port of Piave Vecchia. It meets its tributary the Botteniga or Cagnan at Treviso.
    In the 17th century, during the great land drainage works and constructions of canals, the natural flow of the river has been chngeds same as its inflow. River Sile has long been known for its mills, in the 19th century only in Treviso was 61 mills.
    In 1991 a part of the river Sile was declared "Parco naturale regionale del fiume Sile" (natural park).

    Riva Cagnan

    by croisbeauty Updated Mar 10, 2014

    Riva Cagnan
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Riva Cagnan, along Canale Cagnan, is one of the oldest part of the town. Actually, it is a canal inside the old core of the town which starts at Porta Fra Gioccondo and ends at Ponte Dante. According to many, it is the most pitoresque part of Treviso where most of the old mills still can be seen.
    In local Treviggiano dialect "cagnan" is a word for the canal.

    The Buranelli district.

    by Maurizioago Updated Sep 26, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: It was built in the XVI century for a community of fishermen coming from Burano (an island; part of Venice).

    Every year, on the second half of june, a feast is held in this area; for a week end. It is called Festa dei Buranelli. These days you can taste some typical food, listen to music and enjoy some other venues.

    Piazza dei Signori.

    by Maurizioago Updated Aug 15, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Piazza dei Signori is the main square in Treviso. It is surrounded by some ancient palaces. Cal Maggiore; a beautiful porticoed street starts from there.

    The main sights of this square are the Palazzo dei Trecento; built between 1200 and 1213 to house a meeting hall for the podestà (the Mayor) and the City Council. Adjoining this building you can see the Palazzo del Podestà. This was the Mayor and his family's residence.

    TREVISO: an offbeat after a daylight in Venice

    by microsensazione Written Jul 22, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Treviso - Piazza dei Signori

    Favorite thing: In case you are searching for accommodation and Venice appears too expensive, there is a second choice: Mestre.

    Anyway I'd add a third choice: it is TREVISO.

    Treviso is less than three quarter of hours by train far from "Venezia S.L." train station, less expensive than Venice (more than Mestre...) and it could become your offbeat evening experience after a daylight spent in Venice.

    Some ideas about Treviso:
    http://www.trevisoinfo.com/
    http://www.football-italia.net/articles/cityguidetre.html
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treviso
    Search for: "Treviso osterie" on Google Maps ("Sestìn", "Muscoli'S" are only two examples...)
    Search for: "Treviso pizzerie" on Google Maps (Pizzeria "Da Fausta" is known to be one of the best in the town by local people)
    "Vineria - Treviso Università" is my favourite (prices over average but you have high quality wines and food). Take a look on:
    http://www.vineria.it/EN/

    ...and now a "must" in Treviso!
    FIRST step: before dinner ALWAYS aperitif in a bar. We ALWAYS order SPRITZ ("Aperol", "Prosecco" white wine and soda).
    SECOND step: when you'll sit in a restaurant, or pizzeria, order a chalice of "Prosecco", if possible the DOCG "Conegliano Valdobbiadene PROSECCO Superiore".
    Take a look on: http://new.prosecco.it/en/
    THIRD step: enjoy your travel and feel you WELCOME in my Country!

    Treviso porticos

    Treviso porticos
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: The charm of Treviso is also given by its cobbled streets with porticos.

    As the locals explain, the porticos allow them to walk in the town even when it rains without using the umbrella or getting wet.

    And even one of the symbols of Treviso, Loggia dei Cavalieri, it is actually a square portico covered in wood.

    Treviso canals

    by Diana75 Updated Nov 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Treviso canals
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: In a certain way, the canals make Treviso very similar to Venezia.

    The old walls and the canals formed around it by the rivers Sile and Cagnan, give Treviso the aspect of a fortress.

    The river Sile is crossing Treviso from west to east, while Cagnan (called Botteniga until it arrives to Treviso) passes under the old Ponte Fra’ Giocondo.

    Once passed the city walls, Cagnan splits in three directions: on the west Roggia and then Siletto, in the middle Cagnan de Mezo (or dei Buranelli, delle Beccherie or dell’Ospedale according to the area it passes through) and in the east Cagnan Grande or delle Pescheria.

    Navigated today only by geese and swans, the canals are an important part of Treviso life.

    Treviso on the water

    Canale dei Buranelli
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Canale dei Buranelli is the oldest and the most pitoresque part of Treviso. It looks very alike to Venice and its canals, except for gondolas which are missing here. The whole area is favourite pedestrian, for both locals and visitors, and is in particularly attractive under the night illumination. Not of less importance, this is very pieceful and safe area, even late in the nights.

    Via Roggia

    by croisbeauty Updated Nov 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Via Roggia
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The history of the town goes back into the Roman period when Treviso was Roman municipium. The town reached its greatest prosperity in the Middle Ages, it was the centre of a Lombard duchy, then the capital of a Carolingian marca and finaly, after 1389 the stronghold of the northwestern border of Venetian republic.

    Fondest memory: The town is situated on two rivers, Sile and Botteniga. This is Via Roggia, probably the most beautiful street of Treviso. On the left side there are the houses with the porticoes, known as "androna tedesca", while on the right side it is a canal Roggia with small bridges and gardens.

    Riviera Garibaldi
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: In the medieval times, the town walls of Treviso were considered impenetrable. In the 18th century, during agricultural revolution and the consequent construction of patrician residences in the country side, brought expansion outside the walls.

    Fondest memory: Ponte Dante connects two parts of the town located along the canal of Cagnan Grande. It is a part of the town known as riviera Garibaldi.

    by Andrew_Liu Written May 6, 2003
    An old building

    Favorite thing: The company we contacted with is in Treviso located in north of Venice. It is said that Treviso was built for protecting Venice from northern foreigner hundreds years ago. We still saw a section of wall now.
    Currently Treviso is a quiet small town. We visited a famous church here. We saw a beautiful building, like picture shows, which is one of oldest building in Treviso, they said.
