What you'll do
Let's discover Treviso, city of waters, a little hidden gem! I will meet you in Piazza Borsa, in front of the Tourist office (a different meeting point can be agreed), where the tour ends too. This 2 hours walking tour will give you the opportunity of relaxing in the capital of the “joyous and amorous Marca”. We will explore this little medieval jewel and wander among canals and tiny roads, in this city which was so colourful and richly frescoed (some of them are still visible) to be called “Urbs picta”, painted town. We’ll admire the most picturesque corners of Treviso, like the ancient hospital or the fish market areas; we’ll walk through the most important squares, like Piazza dei Signori or Piazza Duomo, the religious focal point. You’ll see the most significant palaces, like Palazzo dei Trecento, and unique monuments like The Knights’ loggia. And if you love desserts and sweets, I will show you where the famous Tiramisù was invented! Feel free to ask any questions, also about everyday life or tips about the best restaurants, shops and so on..
Hi! I am Ilaria and I am a tour leader and tour guide. I’ve always loved getting in contact with other cultures and travelling: that’s why I’ve studied foreign languages and I decided to work in the field of tourism, first abroad and in Italy then. Some years ago I decided to "come back home" and I started to work as tour guide in Venice and in my beloved Treviso, the capital of the “joyous and amorous Marca”, and the surrounding area. I love helping you to discover this little medieval jewel, to make you breath a “normal” atmosphere and, at the same time, live a wonderful and relaxing experience. Let me show you my home.
I can provide you free maps upon request.
