What travelers are saying
- Unfortunately we only had one night in this wonderful city and wished it was longer. We had no expectations really but were blown away by its simplicity and beauty.
We had heard it was similar to a small Venice but less tourists and I suppose in a way it is. There are not nearly as many waterways but it does have canals through the city with the adds to its charm.
History is all around and the buildings are beautiful. Lots of narrow streets and plazas make it fantastic for getting lost in and finding a restaurant or bar.Written June 11, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Lovely walk along the river after walking through the canals in the city. Peaceful and quite even on a Wednesday morning. Green and tidy, we really enjoyed the sunshine in this beautiful city on an October day.Written October 28, 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Definitely take the time to walk the canals and find the many bridges, especially the Buranelli Bridge.Written June 26, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This fabulous town has lots of beautiful squares but this is probably the jewel in the crown. We were lucky enough to have a meal in it in one of the many beautiful restaurants and that gave us time to fully appreciate it.
Dating back to centuries, many of the buildings are quite simple but very ground and impressive. It is notable how clean and well maintained the area is.
Also lined with expensive boutiques and so on it really is a nice place to spend some time and just soak up the atmosphere.Written June 11, 2022
- Beautiful area to walk around. A large section of the river is accessible via the tow path. Boats are available for hire. Many places to sit and enjoy the view – perfect when you have to wait until the various tourist attractions are open after the noon siesta.Written February 2, 2020
- Yoy arrive there and you cannot believe that a 'dwarf' island is there. And they sell fish and seafood in the morning. There are nice cafes and restaurants all around and you feel on another planet.Written September 30, 2021
- The special exhibit on Impressionism was very large and well done. There were many works that represented the various artists very well, along with some that were interesting because they were not what one thinks about a particular artist. Well worth the visit.
The writeups in each room tended to be too long, and the museum was crowded, but it is worth fighting the crowds. Advance tickets will save you a bit of a wait.Written February 20, 2017
- The present Churches of Santa Lucia and the Church of San Vito have closely coincided in the past and have an interesting history. In the second half of the 14th century, a new public palace was built in Treviso, near the apse of the church of San Vito and the neighboring chapel of Santa Maria delle Carceri (which served as a place of worship for prisoners of nearby prisons). On the first floor of the imposing building was the City Council meeting room, while on the lower floor the only room was divided into three irregular naves (the middle one was narrower than the side ones), with four spans covered with cross-shaped vaults. This ground floor space was allotted to the church and dedicated to Santa Lucia on December 13, 1389, in commemoration of the day the city of Treviso was annexed to the Republic of Venice. The area above the church of Santa Lucia was sold to Monte di Pietà in 1498, due to the increased operational needs of the institute. In 1561, a further extension of the Monte di Pietà above the church of San Vito was approved, in exchange for a proper restoration of the religious building. This architectural renovation gave the complex of the churches of San Vito and Santa Lucia its present shape, on that occasion the chapel of Santa Maria delle Carceri was turned into a sacristy of two churches, and the name Santa Maria delle Carceri became Santa Lucia. It is extremely interesting church. The spiritual harmony of the place, shrouded in darkness, welcomes the faithful and the visitor to the church of Santa Lucia, dedicated to a cult of the Syracusan saint woman whose remains have been kept in Venice since 1204. She was martyred on 13 December 304 during the persecutions of the emperor Diocletian. The presbytery is magnificent and enchants with its beauty and spirituality. The main altar preserves an original rostrum dating back to the end of the 14th century. The high-relief, in Istrian stone, depicts Saint Lucia crowned, bearing her vase with her eyes and her palm, symbol of her martyrdom. To the left of the presbytery is the walled bas-relief with St. Christopher and St. James the Greater, and above the Crucifixion of Jesus. The work, dated 1437, presents the rather rare iconography of the diptych with two standing figures facing each other within an architecture arched. Located next to the entrance, the chapel of the Crucifix preserves the fresco of the Madonna del Paveio, framed by the fragment of angels painted by Tommaso da Modena in the first half of the fourteenth century. The Crucifixion of Jesus is the focal point of the entire decoration, which develops from the inside of the arch to the back wall, and is divided into squares arranged asymmetrically, within which scenes from the cycle of the Passion of Christ appear.Written December 10, 2021
- During the early 1500s the old medieval walls were demolished and replaced by brick walls some of them still intact untill today. The course of the Botteniga river was diverted to create a deep moat. Nowadays only parts are intact often with just stagnant water. At the time it must have been an enormous construction work. The investment was deemed necessary due to the attacks by the League of Cambria, a rival entity to Venice. Nice to walk along the northern sections.Written August 31, 2021
- Museo Civico Luigi Bailo was on our “Things to do” list from the planning period of our visit to Treviso. We were inspired with this choice, because the museum is interesting, well-organized, located in a building with a modern architecture and well devoted to the museum purpose.
We admired works of local artists from the period of 19th and 20th Century. A special collection dedicated to artists who created between the two world wars is also displayed. In this museum there are paintings, sculptures, graphics, drawings and ceramics.
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm and the entrance fee was 6 euro, October last year.Written December 18, 2019

- Better then the cathedral, with more paintings and a more spiritual atmosphere. Quite a few panels with interesting informations. At the entrance, the moving memorial of Petrarca's daughter; at the bottom left of the autel, the monumental tomb of Dante Alighieri's son.Written October 10, 2018
- This was built in 1559. The English translation is "The Fountain of Tits," I think . Under the rules of the Venetian Republic, red and white wine gets poured here during special occasions. Too bad we were not here to see one. Maybe next timeWritten February 21, 2020
