What to see
in the City of Treviso
Treviso isn’t large; it can be sufficiently explored in a whole day.
However, it’s full of small wonders, all worth seeing and taking along in the album of beautiful memories…
Here they are:
• Piazza dei Signori
Piazza dei Signori in Treviso has always been the social hub and the elegant meeting place for the locals. On this elegant, welcoming, and well-maintained square, there are graceful arcades, restaurants, bars with their tables, shops, and boutiques.
• The Palazzo dei Trecento in Treviso
Built in 1210, it overlooks Piazza dei Signori and takes its name from the 300 members of the Municipal Council. With its red brick arches, it still hosts municipal council meetings today and is one of the most significant examples of Romanesque architecture in the city.
• Palazzo del Podestà and Torre Civica in Treviso
The building was constructed in the 13th century and has been reconstructed several times. It was the seat of the Podestà, who by law could not be from Treviso or neighboring towns, hence did not have a home and moved there with their entire entourage.
• Calmaggiore and the Fontana delle Tette in Treviso
Rich with elegant shops, it leads from Piazza dei Signori to Piazza Duomo, historically connecting Treviso’s political heart to its religious one.
• The Church of San Nicolò in Treviso
The largest church in the city and certainly worth a visit is the Church of San Nicolò, built in the 12th century by the Dominican friars through the endowments of Benedetto XI.
• The Walls and Waterways of Treviso
The ancient Tarvisium of Roman times was surrounded by a defensive wall from the time of its foundation, and these walls have always protected the city. Today, some sections of the walls can be visited, and until recently, entry into the city was possible only through three gates: Porta San Tommaso, Porta Santi Quaranta, and Porta Altinia.
• Pescheria Island in Treviso
Pescheria Island takes its name from the fish market that takes place here every morning. It is located right in the center of Treviso, on the Cagnan Grando river, and is connected to the city center via two bridges that can be crossed on foot or by bicycle.
• The Santa Caterina Complex in Treviso
The Santa Caterina complex is the main hub of the network of Civic Museums in Treviso. The complex includes the church and the convent, recently restored.
