Walled cities in the province of Treviso

Route details Recommended period Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter Phone

At Revine Lago, close to the Treviso Pre-Alps, there is the Archaeological Didactic Park of Livelet, which tells the ancient history of the Marca Trevigiana, from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age.

The route starts from Asolo, with the majestic Rocca fortress, the Castello della Regina Cornaro, the Palazzo della Ragione and the Cathedral. Castelfranco Veneto pays homage to his illustrious son, Giorgione, through the Museum bearing his name and the Cathedral with the extremely famous artwork "Madonna and Child Enthroned". Within the twelfth century walls there is also the Teatro Accademico.

It continues to the Lands of Prosecco. Conegliano is the birthplace of the painter Giambattista Cima: the Cathedral, with the Sala dei Battuti annex, preserves the altarpiece "Madonna with child and angels". Visit the Castle with the Bell Tower, which today is the location of the Civic Museum.

Vittorio Veneto is the result of the integration between two towns, Ceneda and Serravalle, combined in 1866 to form a new city. Little remains of the ancient fortifications but the Palazzo della Comunità, the Cathedral of S.Maria Nuova with the altarpiece by Tiziano and the Sanctuary of Santa Augusta are all worth a visit. In Ceneda, home of Lorenzo Da Ponte, you'll find the Museo della Battaglia and the Castello di San Martino. 

The walls that surround Treviso were commissioned by the Serenissima Venetian Rebublic and are still well preserved. Porta Santi Quaranta, the Bastion of San Marco, Ponte Pria and Porta Altinia are just some of the fortified structures that the city offers to tourists wishing to discover its important past.

The other walled cities in the province of Treviso are San Zenone, Roncade and Portobuffolè.

The Regional Park of the River Sile includes a protected area that follows the course of one of the longest resurgence rivers in Europe. It begins upstream of the city of Treviso, in the Casacorba area, where the water flows freely from the ground creating the "Fontanassi", as the springs are called in Treviso dialect.
