Often referred to as ‘Little Venice’, Treviso is a lesser known gem in Italy’s crown. With all the charm but less foot traffic than the famous Floating City, Treviso is fast becoming a popular choice for experienced travellers who are looking for the romance of canal-side living. If you’ve been wondering about Treviso luxury travel but you’re not sure where to begin, we’ve put together a list of five reasons to visit this idyllic location. 


1. The Prosecco

If you’re a fan of bubbles, you’re in for a treat because the prosecco you drink in Treviso is produced right outside the walls of the city. The Veneto region is known for its high quality produce and the hills surrounding the city are teeming with vineyards dedicated to bottling these delectable bubbles. There’s no better place to see how your favourite fizz is made so a trip to the prosecco region is an indisputable addition to any Treviso travel guide.

Top tip: Don’t miss the wine route up to Valdobbiadene, the official capital of prosecco.

2. The Art & Culture

Treviso is a medieval city located behind an ancient stone wall and it’s got the art and culture to match. Whether you spend a morning reflecting in one of the cathedrals, choose to visit one of the many art galleries or soak up the history by wandering through the old stone streets, Treviso boasts some of the best of what Italian art, culture and cuisine has to offer. Did we mention the fact that it’s the birthplace of Tiramisu? This, in our opinion, is reason enough to visit.

3. The Pace of Life 

One of the top reasons to visit Treviso is quite simply the relaxed pace of the city. Since it is not a marker on the major tourists itineraries, the real pace of Italian life is still being upheld. Spend leisurely afternoons drinking Aperol along the waterways, before retiring for a siesta and waking to an authentic, home-cooked meal. If you’re looking for a way to get that holiday feeling, this is the spot for you.

4. The Local Experience 

Treviso’s hidden beauty makes it the ideal place to see what it’s like to live like the locals do in Italy. If you’re looking for a way to experience an authentic Italian city, while still enjoying the comforts of a sumptuous escape, Treviso luxury travel is a fantastic option. The city is full of exceptional cafes and restaurants, though you won’t have to wait weeks to get a reservation. If getting to know the barista at your local coffee spot is the way you like to travel, we highly recommend a trip to Treviso.

5. The Canals

No Treviso travel guide would be complete without a mention of the stunning canals. There’s something about having water running through a city that changes the atmosphere completely and in Treviso it’s no different. The river Sile runs alongside the city while the river Botteniga runs through it and the waterways criss cross their way between them. Enjoying a meal along the water with the locals while the sun is setting is definitely a bucket list activity in our books.
