Treviso is a city to be discovered, without striking monuments, it offers incomparable places, views and experiences to be lived in complete relax. To experience Treviso at its most, I suggest overnighting in a B & B as it assures more freedom and at the same time you have a direct contact with the host that can be a good guide for advice. The B&B Design 19, Borgo Cavour 19, tel. +390422419145 , is in a building of 18th century, it has 4 bedrooms and on request you can use the kitchen for even more independence. Extremely advised for the kindness of Marta as well as for the convenient location. If you prefer a hotel Il Focolare, Piazza Ancilotto 4 , tel. +39042256601 , is a very welcoming small hotel in the heart of Treviso, just behind Piazza dei Signori, from the rooms on the top floor you can enjoy a unique view over the alleys in the Pescheria neighbourhood.

Let’s start this trip around Treviso, for sure don’t miss the three churches: the Dom with Tiziano’s fresco in the chapel Malchiostro, the Church of S. Nicolo’, and Church S. Francesco where Dante’s son and Petrarca’s daughter are buried. Explore the exhibitions program at Ca’ dei Carraresi, Via Palestro, 33/35 , tel. +39 0422 513150, and just around the corner you reach one of the most suggestive areas of Treviso: the Pescheria area. Browse here through the alleys interrupted from time to time by the Cagnani (such are called the little channels in dialect) of the Botteniga river and enjoy the small shops.

The food is the expression of a culture, so what a better way to discover Treviso through its food? Recently, the Antica Pasticceria Nascimben, Via Luzzati 15, tel. +390422210311, reopened its doors just outside the city walls, try the typical Pazientina cake and Tiramisu’ of Treviso. Whereas for a good ice cream that comes “with a smile” you should definitely pay a visit to Stefano Dassie, Via Calmaggiore 60. The osterie (taverns) are the heart of Treviso, always haunts of Trevisani. Stop by for some fingerfood (called Cicchetti), the classic accompaniment of a glass of spritz or an ombra (glass of wine in the local dialect) or for a full meal. Among the most characteristics: da Gigia, Via Barberia 20, to taste the mozzarella in a carriage with or without anchovies, dai Nanetti, Viale Broli 2, for the hand-cut mortadella and home-made bread, da Trevisi, Viale Trevisi, tel. +390422545308, offers a relaxing atmosphere and fresh cicchetti, by Marco the owner big fan of rugby.

Jump on your bike and in 4km  (by clicking here you will find a map to reach it) you reach Villa Tiepolo Passi, via Brigata Marche 24 – Carbonera, tel. +390422397790.
