    San Nicolo

    This is the view at the baptistery of the church of San Nicolo and the bell-tower. Only from this side you can be aware of its huge proportions. The facade is very simple made of the brick and decorated by many windows.
    Next to the church is the former convent of San Nicolo, now the Seminario Vescovile. The complex is connected by cloisters to the 14th century chapter house, which is decorated by the frescoes of Tommaso da Modena.

    Ponte di Santa Margherita

    Ponte di Santa Margherita
    4 more images

    Ponte di Santa Margherita is designed by the Italian architect Paolo Portoghesi (born 1931), who is also theorist, historian and professor of architecture at the University La Sapienza in Rome. Unlike previous bridge from the early 18th century, which was located in the same place, the new bridge is constructed of wood and therefore controversial and the subject of many polemics.
    Some people like the bridge while others think it's the feast in the eye. I find it to be very attractive, especially when illuminated during night times.

    Piazza dei Signori is the core of Treviso center, the medieval Palazzo dei Trecento dominate the square-
    There are some elegant cafeterias with tables under shady awning or under the lodge.
    The square used to be called "della Berlina" as during medieval time, people guilt of some crime were made walking around so everybody could see their dishonor, that in Italy is called "mettere alla berlina"

    The municipality use the square space for events and celebration.

    Walking Around The Center

    Accordion Fellow Adds Italian Music

    You are going to like Treviso, such a well kept place, and many things to see by just walking around.
    Featured here are photos from my walk through the center.
    If you are lucky enough to hear an accordion player, be sure and stop and listen, and then give the fellow a few coins. Being an accordion player, myself, I can tell you that he practiced a long time to get to be able to sit there are bang out those Italian folk tunes. So be kind, please.
    In almost every city you will see monuments to famous Italian people, and Garibaldi is one of the top featured politicians. Treviso has a marble etched monument on the main street. You can see that this town has given though of going modern while keeping things old and treasured like the signs on the front of the buildings.

    Fish Market

    Tasty St. John Shellfish (Cape Sante) in Veneto
    3 more images

    Treviso has provided a place near the canal for the fish venders, and the city keeps it very clean and tidy. I was here on a Saturday and some of the venders had sold all their fish, while about 10 others were still competing for the clients. We saw many varied types of fish, as you can see from the photos.
    The area along this part of the canal is very tranquil and there are benches for seating. If possible I would suggest going here in the early morning when there will be lots of people doing their shopping.
    Don't miss the waterwheel very near, and the statues placed in the canal..

    Waterwheels

    Near fish market

    Treviso has a main canal and along it in the center you can find some old waterwheels. This adds to the relaxed feeling of the town and gives a peaceful touch. I am sure that the people are proud to keep these waterwheels turning, while other cities have removed theirs.

    United Colours of Benetton - Treviso

    The world renowned fashion brand Benetton was born here is Treviso when in the 1960 Luciano Benetton who was a sales man in Treviso back then started off this company by selling his younger brother's bicycle to get his first 2nd hand sewing machine and came up with his very own line.

    The River Sile - Treviso

    Treviso is built on the river Sile so wherever you are in Treviso you can see the river in fact if you take the outer parts of the city centre and walk along the river Sile, there is a very nice walk where you can admire the buildings built around this river.

    Church of San Lorenzo - Treviso
    3 more images

    This is a very small church which is currently being restored. The story goes back to 1330 when it was originally a hospital, called Hospital of St Leonard. It has been demolished and re done so many times since then and until this very day the frescoes inside are once again being restored. When I visited I couldn't see much but managed to take a picture of some paintings.

    La Loggia dei Cavalieri - Treviso
    1 more image

    This big monument was built in the 2nd half of the 13th century, when Andrea da Perugia was the Podesta in Treviso. In simple words a loggia is like a kiosk or one big canopy but made of bricks and tiled, where the nobles met to take part in parlour games when the weather was good. It is still a very nice building today and if walking in Treviso at night this loggia is well lit and can also be admired by night.

    Chiesa SAn Francesco

    by BruceDunning Updated Aug 29, 2009

    Side view of the church

    The brick facade is rather mundane, in my opinion. It was built in the 13th century by Franciscan monks over 1231-1270 years. The frescoes inside are the site to take in, some done by Tommaso da Modena of Madonna completed in 1351. The roof is shaped like a boat keel and is very high. The church was closed after some ruin by Napoleon era, and re -opened in 1928.

    View of the tower and square

    This is the nucleus center of the city, and Piazza del Signori means Lords Square. The anchor is Palazzo dell Podesta, built in 15th century, and now an administrative building for Government. It was rebuilt in 1870s. It has a tall civic tower called Il Campanion. It is intertwined with the brick Palazzo dei Trecento, the council hall, an area used even back to Roman times. It was built in 1185. The bell tower is from the 1200's, but reconstructed after WWII due to the damage to the city.
    Upscale shopping starts at this point along Via Camaggiore and going toward the Duomo St. Peter.

    Wall surrounds the fortress castle
    2 more images

    There is a castle fortress on an island that is surrounded by walls from the centuries previous. The walled town dates back as an outpost for the Romans in early AD. Since then the walls were rebuilt and were fortified stronger by the Venetians because this town was a main defense for any intrusion from the north. They are about 2 1/1 miles around, even though you only see some of that today. This was all surrounded also by a moat of the fast flowing river called Sile. It is now a part of the university of Treviso grounds, and a bridge goes across to the castle; used for classes.
