A real gem of Treviso. Very charming. Extremely popular place among the local population. The right place to relax. This Buranelli canal is a branch of the Botteniga, the most important river in Treviso. The canal is located in the historic center of Treviso, and owes its name to the presence of a palace that belonged to Buranelli, a family of merchants from Burano (an island in the Venetian Lagoon) who bought the beautiful Palace in the sixteenth century, for the reason that they were fascinated by the beautiful panorama of the canal. Right next to the pedestrian bridge there are numerous shops and restaurants where we can taste typical local chicory, in many variants (In meat dishes, in risotto, in salad, in cakes), on the opposite bank is the work of Mario Martinelli, transparent, built in 2000 It is dedicated to the Buranelli family, a few meters away, there is an interesting house where the poet Giovanni Comisso lives. After a few meters the canal 'disappears' under a masonry building with four arches. We continued along the canal and found the historic Beccherie restaurant (due to the presence of the restaurant, the Buranelli canal is also called the Beccherie canal). Passing under Via Martiri della Libertà, the canal ‘reappears’ near the former Santa Maria dei Battuti hospital (at this point it becomes a hospital canal). It then flows under the old hospital, the building is now a branch of the University of Padua and Ca 'Foscari of Venice, the canal then runs along University Square to then flow into the Sile, another large river of Treviso. Channel Buranelli, undoubtedly the most famous canal in Treviso, one of the places that are Trevisovci favorite, evocative look, almost like a postcard. It is a meeting place for young people and not so young people, big and small chronicles are told here, which will be passed from generation to generation. One brief look at the magical canal is able to tell and describe to a romantic soul a small part of the history of Treviso.

Hard to imagine that once women used to wash clothes in the canal. The Buranelli family after which the canal was named, did not object.

What struck me most about the canals in Treviso is the strong current of the water moving through. Even the ducks and swans had to work hard to swim against it. Of course this is primarily caused by the elevation difference, but as well because Treviso was built at the confluence of two rivers. The water of the Botteniga is flowing rapidly through the city canals to flow into the Sile river further south. Waterwheels were placed into the canals to enable the milling of grain. Canalization made it possible for ships to sail upstream and load and unload cargo.

So, not just romantic, but an example of how people made use of the opportunities offered by nature.

Treviso is an excellent little town which is one of the old walled towns (from the Romans?) in northern Italy.

The water flowing through Treviso gives the little town a Venise feel and the walks during day or evening is especially very nice. Don't miss the opportunity to have a local Spritz at one of the many little local pubs during an evening stroll.

When I return to this region I will definitely stay a couple of days in Treviso for sightseeing, shopping and doing the history tourist thing in little germ town. What I loved most is that I have encountered very few tourists in Treviso and I found the shopping and prices very resonable.

After staying in Venice for one week I found this area of the city as a small version of the famous city that stands over the water. Take a walk there if you visit Treviso, it is a picturesque area and a nice place to take some photos.

It is very close to Venice, so you can probably stay for the night once it is cheaper than sleeping in Venice. Apart from it, Treviso has its own beauty. It is easy to sightseeing on foot. You will certainly notice its chaming river along and across the city!

Lovely area for a stroll. It reminded me of Venice. Well, after all Treviso is known for its ties with the water. Little Venice, not far away from Venice.

and if you're in town you should follow it for awhile. There are nice bridges spanning the canal, a beautiful willow tree, and other things to see.

The "buranelli" are a part of the old town in treviso, where you can find a lot of canals and bridges. It ;s a lovely place, so peaceful and charming, ideal for people who look for a relaxing vaccation without crowds of tourists. The whole area is so romantic and calm, we enjoyed so much strolling here and there. In the "buranelli" are located many nice little restaurants and cafes. If you visit treviso don;t miss this place.

Treviso is a quiet place in Italy. I can compare it with Veniece because there are lots of bridges and water there. I think, it's enough 3 or 4 hours to see this small town if you have a map. You can travel alone with a camera and enjoy nice views.
Some people speak English. They are lovely, ready to help you and can even show you the most interesting sights in the town :)
