A territory to taste

Tour of the flavours of Treviso

The March of Treviso is an area rich in extraordinary gastronomic excellence. This tour takes you on a tempting travel experience to discover delicious food and wines.

The famous Radicchio Rosso di Treviso PGI is grown in the Treviso countryside, the result of a particular blanching process during which it loses most of its bitter taste, taking on a sweet aftertaste, while its leaves become crunchy.

Castelfranco Veneto, a walled town that houses a beautiful altarpiece by the painter Giorgione, grows Radicchio Variegato di Castelfranco PGI, which stands out for its cream-white leaves, with variegations ranging from light purple to bright red.

Going up towards the Pedemontana highway you will find the Prosecco hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with their gentle slopes and terraced vineyards. This is the historic area of Prosecco Superiore DOCG. Continuing north we come across the village of Combai, surrounded by chestnut woods. Our advice? Visit it in autumn during the PGI Chestnut festival.

Going south we meet the Piave river. On its sandy banks, white asparagus sprouts in spring. Cimadolmo asparagus, in particular, are very sweet and are traditionally savoured alongside hard-boiled eggs. Before returning to Treviso, stop on Montello hill, one of the destinations for trips outside the Treviso area, to enjoy a snack of Casatella DOP cheese, soprèssa salami and polenta.
