Culture and history
In the heart of the Venetian city
Treviso's historic old town is encircled by 16th-century ramparts, and you can plan a walk along the fortifications. Inside, charming dwellings and Renaissance buildings await. Piazza dei Signori at Treviso's centre is a square surrounded by medieval palazzos that bear witness to the city's former power.
Marvel at religious buildings
As a typical Italian city, Treviso boasts numerous churches: the cathedral and the church of San Nicolò, to name just two. The former is fascinating with its seven domes and a façade like the entrance to a temple. Its understated style belies several small yet beautifully-embellished chapels within. The gothic church of San Nicolò Gothic, meanwhile, hides a remarkable 14th-century fresco.
Venetian art at the Luigi Bailo museum
Tucked away in an old convent in a neighbourhood characterised by its fine houses, this art museum holds collections by 19th- and 20th-century artists from the region. Paintings and sculptures by Arturo Martini, Luigi Serena and many more are on display here: a wonderful journey into the heart and soul of Treviso.
Stock up at the fish market
Experience something a little different with a trip to the fish market in the historic Pescheria district. From Tuesday to Saturday, market stalls set up shop on the river island of Botteniga. Expect an incredibly diverse range of species on sale in a gorgeous setting.
Hit the shops - Italian-style
Like many of the other towns and cities on the Italian peninsula, Treviso is bursting with artisan boutiques and other high-end outlets. Benetton's headquarters are just a short distance from the city. Shop for brand-name pieces, artisanal goods or local delicacies. The perfect opportunity to treat yourself and loved ones.
Radicchio is a local variety of chicory that is hugely popular in risottos. Generally cooked in white wine, in this version the risotto is left to bubble away in red wine instead. The result is a delicious rose-tinged risotto that melts in the mouth. It will leave no palate indifferent!
Tiramisu, il divino
It is said that Italy's most famous dessert was originally invented in Treviso. It would be a crime to leave town without tasting tiramisu. All the restaurants here serve up their take on this culinary classic - it's up to you to decide which one you prefer! The dessert features coffee-soaked biscuits layered under mascarpone cream and dusted with cocoa powder for a mouth-watering dolce.
