Treviso

Porta of San Tomaso.Treviso

The north entrance gate to Treviso is called Porta of San Tomaso, daunting walls were erected to make the town more secure in the early sixteenth century.  Access to the town was restricted to just three gates,which have all survived intact to the present day.

The water canals flow around and through Treviso under large and small bridges and in front of reflecting houses with their colourful balconies of blooming flowers.Treviso is a maze of narrow cobbled lanes, and not easy to walk around ladies with heels.

Treviso by night is magnificient, the heart of town Piazza dei Signori is the main meeting place for both young and old. Now surrounded by bars,restaurants and ice cream parlours. It’s the place to meet for a “spritz” the local drink of prosecco and bitters.
