What you can expect
Enjoy the relaxed ambiance of the crowd-free walled centre of Treviso, the city of Proseco wine, Porchetta trevigiana and Tiramisù. Wander around led by your local guide, walk along cobbled streets, pass medieval gates and cross the bridges upon the rivers that flow through the city.
Start from the central Piazza dei Signori with its Palazzo dei Signori, walk along a maze of alleys turning like dried-out water courses and see the ancient Roman ruins. See the massive but modest church of the Dominican order, see the architectural mix of the city with ancient buildings stuck on new ones. Stroll over the river to reach a top spot overlooking it from above in a little square surrounded by medieval buidings with frescoed facades.
Stop to start your food and wine training: make a cheers with a glass of sparkling Prosecco wine and some wonderful slices of Porchetta! Keep on going visiting the fish market area and passing through and old convent until reaching the perfectly-preserved walls that surround the city centre to see one of the most beautiful gate of the city. Along the way make another couple of reinvigorating stop with tasty food and delicious wines.
Go back towards the central square, make a “must do” stop to a delicatessen shop to accompany wonderful cold cuts and cheeses with another glass of wine. Walk a bit more to have the sweetest experience, a nice slice of the local famous Tiramisù cake with a glass of sweet wine.
