Treviso is a city of slow peace, perfect for those who want to explore every corner looking for original views, breathing in the air of ancient charming.
What to see in Treviso:
The heart of the city and the meeting place of the trevigiani is Piazza dei Signori with its Palazzo dei Trecento and the elegant Loggia Dei Cavalieri.
The two rivers, Sile and Cagnan, wind through the streets and give a unique charm to the historic centre enclosed by ancient walls. While the porticoed houses with beautiful frescoed facades are telling about the tight bond of Treviso with its waters, through their reflections on the Buranelli canal and the Isola della Pescheria, which is created in the river Cagnan to host the fish market.
One of the notable places to visit in Treviso is the Cathedral that contains, inside the Malchiostro Chapel, the frescoes of Pordenone and the altarpiece with the Annunciation by Titian. Other artistic treasures are housed in the museum complex of Santa Caterina dei Servi di Maria, including the cycle of the stories of Sant’Orsola di Tommaso da Modena, and some artworks of G. Bellini, Lotto, Tiziano, J. Bassano. It is also worth visiting the Dominican church of San Nicolò, with the famous Sala del Capitolo frescoed by Tommaso da Modena. For art lovers, the appointment is in the Casa dei Cararresi, which in the following years has become the seat of prestigious international exhibitions.
