Venetia, a truly fascinating region, has kept intact its artistic, cultural and natural treasures. Getting to know Venetia means to discover its ancient rooted history. Indeed, visitors will find it hard to choose among the countless tours the area has to offer.
It is a land inhabited by simple yet extremely warm and friendly people who are glad to disclose their age-old drinking and eating traditions.
Thanks to its exceptional location, Treviso offers easy access to many Venetian attractions.
Lovers of art and history,  will be fascinated by towns like Padua, with S. Anthony’s Basilica and Giotto’s frescoed Scrovegni Chapel, or Vicenza, with the famous Venetian mansions by the architect Andrea Palladio, by Verona, Belluno and especially by Venice, the unparalleled world’s gem.
However, Venetia does not encompass only large towns. Its fortified towns are especially fascinating: Feltre, Bassano (with the Ponte Vecchio bridge designed by Andrea Palladio, its ceramics and grappa), Marostica (with the famous chess-board square), Cittadella (with the biggest circular walls in Venetia), Castelfranco Veneto (Giorgione’s native town), Asolo (the charming Medieval village where Eleonora Duse lived), and just a few miles away Maser (with the Palladian Barbaro villa whose rooms were embellished by Paolo Veronese), Possagno (with Canova’s house, gallery of plaster casts and temple). To lovers of art and good wine we warmly recommend visiting Conegliano, Vittorio Veneto and Valdobbiadene, old towns that have become famous worldwide for their production of “Prosecco” wine.
Starting out from Treviso it is possible to walk or cycle in the areas surrounding the city.  Water lovers can go to swimming pools in Treviso itself, or, a short distance away, to the beach at Lido di Jesolo, on the Adriatic Sea.
Treviso itself offers a wide range of leisure activities: swimming-pool, sauna,
tennis, golf, horseback-riding, gymnasiums, solariums. Treviso by night offers interesting and amusing entertainment: concerts, exhibitions, and shows of all kinds.
