Just an half an hour away...
Treviso, just half an hour train ride from Venice, was considered 'the garden of Venice'.
Very often ignored by tourists who prefer the nearby town of Venice, has much to offer. Enjoy an half day tour and discover its wonderful and hidden corners, shops, canals.
Close to the vineyards where the Prosecco is born, we will wonder the small little medieval paths, looking for some of the most caring corners of this town!
The centre of Treviso is a little walled city, with medieval gates, narrow, cobbled streets of arcaded rose-red brick and stone. Tiny canals run past an handkerchief-sized gardens, glide beneath houses, appear at street corners. Dante described Treviso as ' the place where the Sile and the Cagnan go hand in hand', the two rivers come together to circle the town. We reach Treviso with the train direction Piazza dei Signori, the medieval centre till the Pescheria, the daily fishmarket on a little island, we will walk through Via Calmaggiore, the best shopping street in town, to go to Duomo. We will walk to San Nicolò to admire some of the most beautiful frescoes painted by Tomaso da Modena. A stop for a cicchetto and a lovely prosecco in town and a little bit of shopping time is included.

From the very beginning we knew we have a great guide. VERY warm and friendly personality. Knowledgeable, accommodating and all those good things guides need but Elisabetta had all that and more.
