DAY 4: Treviso
In the morning, take a train from Venezia/S. Lucia to Treviso. It takes about 30 minutes to arrive.
The centre of Treviso is just a 10-minutes’ walk from the railway station. Your English guide waits you after lunch for a 4 hours tour of Treviso.
In the meantime, start strolling around, heading to the meeting point in Piazza dei Signori. You will soon realize that Treviso is bathed by several canals, all originated by the two rivers (Botteniga and Sile) that encircled the city. The canals and the tiny waterways give a really charming appearance to Treviso which is an unspoilt, friendly city where life is slower and relaxed.

By this time, it will be probably lunchtime. Treviso is not the kind of city where you'll see trattorias advertising a “menu turistico”. You will have the chance to eat authentic and traditional food at honest prices. Just permit us recommend you to taste the “Radicchio Trevigiano” a type of chicory with white veins and red-violet leaves that form a round long crispy stick, slightly bitter and perfect for thousands of recipes (risotto, lasagna, grilled, roasted, etc).

Your guided visit will start from the main square Piazza dei Signori which is surrounded by the monumental Palazzo dei Trecento, built in the late 1100s and the 15th-century Palazzo del Podestà with the overlooking Torre del Comune. Not so far from Piazza dei Signori there is the elegant Loggia dei Cavalieri a characteristic 13th-century Romanesque building which was one of the symbol of the nobles’ political power. Once its interior was decorated with chivalry scenes but nowadays they are unfortunately mostly overlapped. decorated with chivalry scenes.
You are going now to visit the Cathedral, home to frescoes by Pordenone and an altar piece of the famous Titian.
St. Nicolò’s Church and the Sala del Capitolo, with frescoes by Tommaso da Modena, are also worth a visit, together with the Medieval Churches of St. Francesco and St. Lucia.
Just before sunset, take a romantic stroll along the medieval arches that line the pretty Buranelli canal and don't miss out on a chilled glass of sparkling Prosecco at a traditional “osteria”.

DAY 5: Treviso
Today, enjoy visiting the city by your own. Don’t miss a visit to the Isola della Pescheria which is literally a very small island located on one of the central canals and it’s a fish market. This is probably the oldest and most authentic quarters in Treviso. Until the mid-1800s, there were three small islands in the middle, where fishermen from Burano brought their fish to sell. Then the three islands were joined, and an appropriate fish market was built. Surrounded as it is by elegant old buildings, this lively morning market is one of the city's most atmospheric sights. More recently, some strange but attractive contemporary sculptures of fish and a mermaid have been added in the river.

Last but not least, if you like shopping, then you'll love “via Calmaggiore” where most stores are located and for a sweet pit-stop, don’t’ forget to taste a slice of the delicious dessert Tiramisù.
Born in the ’50 in the kitchen of the famous Osteria “Le Beccherie”.
