A really pleasurable route is the Land of the Prosecco
, in the Treviso area
, among the rolling hills covered in vineyards, to the discovery of small villages. Our journey starts in Cison di Valmarino:
here a walk in the beautiful historic centre is a must, dominated by the beautiful Castelbrando
, the medieval castle which stands on the Col de Moi. We continue towards Valdobbiadene
, the name of which is inextricably linked to Prosecco
, DOCG wine produced only in Treviso, to be visited also for the eighteenth century Church that hosts works of Palma il Giovane and Paris Bordon. The next stop is Possagno
, a city that gave birth to Antonio Canova, to arrive here we cross some characteristic villages such as Follina and Combai. In Possagno we can visit the Tempio
, a church designed by Canova modelled on the Roman Pantheon and the Gipsoteca,
a collection of works of great sculptures. The journey continues to Asolo,
a village that still retains medieval walls and the castle, the place of exile of the Queen Caterina Cornaro
and that today hosts a theatre dedicated to Eleonora Duse.
The next stop is Maser,
another location linked to the great artist Andrea Palladio, whose amazing Villa Barbaro
has been declared a World Heritage building by UNESCO.
At this point, we cross Montello,
a hill rising to the south of the river Piave through Nervesa della Battaglia
, the scene of violent clashes during the First World War. We then continue until we arrive in Conegliano
, our last stop.
The region offers a succession of wine cellars providing guided tastings of the excellent local wines.
