Treviso was a surprise; we went there one afternoon, deciding at the last minute and it was fantastic.
It is in fact a small but very elegant city, the streets were full of people intent on making the last Christmas purchases; many trendy shops and Venetian-style palaces overlook the long streets that run through the city.
What characterizes Treviso is the presence of river channels, which make it romantic and similar to nearby Venice; the Botteniga river decorates this wonderful city with its canals (called “Cagnan”) and it is really beautiful to walk along the canals and “spy” into the illuminated rooms of the little houses that protrude on the river.
Treviso, like almost every city in Italy, welcomes its visitors with testimonies of its rich past: on our tour we were able to admire the “Loggia dei Cavalieri”, Piazza dei Signori (where the “Palazzo del Podestà”, the “Torre Civica” and the “Palazzo dei Trecento”majestically stand out), the Canoniche complex (the latter one of the oldest buildings in the city).
Not to be missed is also the “isolotto della pescheria”, a real island in the center of the city where every morning a lively fish market takes place; having arrived in the afternoon we could not see it, but we will not miss it in our next visit in Treviso.
After being immersed for a couple of hours in the picturesque streets and the characteristic canals of this amazing city, we decided to take a well-deserved break.
Although the city is known as the capital of Prosecco, we chose to drink something warm, the day was a bit cold….We found a beautiful place called “la tana per te” (as “the cave for tea”): a very small place where fifteen people can sit in a shabby-chic style, a very delicious place!
Here you can enjoy various types of tea and chocolate accompanied by fantastic homemade biscuits.
Once we had some refreshments, we decided to walk a little further along the enchanting streets of the city and then return home.
