Treviso has many buildings which remind the important role the city held during the centuries: it had a university, two Popes and many artists and intellectuals who contributed to call the town “little Athens”. A one-day tour is not enough to visit all its churches, its museums and its palaces. The most important buildings are numbered in the map so that you can create your own route.
The historical centre of Treviso is surrounded by Renaissance walls arranged in a quadrilateral form. The main sqaure, Piazza dei Signori, is located in the centre of the town and is considered to be the hearth of the city. Treviso is a medieval town, and has beautiful houses overlooking its canals. The suggested itinerary starts from the railway station: an accessible point of the town also for those who travel by car thanks to its big parking area.
Treviso is often called “little Venice”. In fact, it is surrounded and crossed by two rivers: the Sile and the Botteniga (mentioned as “Cagnan” by Dante in the Divine Comedy). The itinerary starts from the railway station and crosses the town, reaching the green and lush areas and canals up to Via Alzaia or also known as the “Restera”. Here you can continue your walk on foot or by bike, going on for some kilometres on the path that runs along the river Sile.

After the sunset, Treviso livens up: its squares and bars are the perfect hangouts for everyone to talk or just to drink a spritz, the local aperitif. The suggested itinerary invites the guests to walk through the streets in the afternoon or at night, experiencing the suggestive atmosphere and admiring the pretty houses mirrored in the canals.
Tomaso da Modena, a painter who lived in the 14th century, has been a great innovator in the history of art. After a long period characterised by a conventional way of painting, he used an innovative sense of perspective and he created realistic and expressive figures which spread emotions. A great part of its works were painted in Treviso, as the “Cardinal Ugo da Provenza”, who is using glasses to read: this is the first image of a pair of glasses in the whole history of art. The suggested itinerary includes all the places that boasts Tomaso’s works.
In 1905 Treviso was the greatest military centre in the north of Italy. The town was crossed by the railway lines that lead the soldiers to the frontline. Some places were equipped as military hospitals or refugee shelters, and many buildings were seriously damaged during the bombings. The map features the list of the sights damaged by air-bombings, which were then rebuilt and restored.
