Along the streets - Discovering the history of Treviso surrounded by its buildings, towers and churches

Walking is the best way to visit the old town. Strolling along its streets and alleys will allows you to fully enjoy Treviso’s architectural and artistic history. You will be able to capture every single detail that characterizes the facades of the ancient patrician buildings. The finely decorated arcades, the barbicans that support the roofs of the buildings, without the aid of pillars, and the painted walls and the faux tapestry are some of the elements that characterize medieval Treviso. During your walk you will run across Treviso’s small and romantic squares: Piazza Duomo, Piazza Rinaldi (the ancient location of the fruit market) and Piazza dei Signori, where the Council of the Three-hundreds, who ruled the town, used to meet in 1300.

From one church to another - Not only places of worship but also guardians of works created by unmatched artists of the past

During your walk along the streets of Treviso’s old town, you will come across many churches, full of masterpieces. Among them, he ones not to be missed are:  the Cathedral with the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament by Antonio Lombardo, with sculptures by Bregno; the early Christian crypt and the Annunziata Chapel. Inside it you can admire the altarpiece by Tiziano, portraying “the Annunciation” and the fresco composition by Il Pordenone. Just after the cathedral you will find San Nicolò’s church with pictorial cycles by Lorenzo Lotto and Tommaso da Modena. The latter also decorated other churches in the city centre, among which San Francesco, Santa Lucia, and Santa Maria Maggiore, that also preserve works by Cima da Conegliano and Il Pozzoserrato.
