Treviso, Italy

In June 2013 we went on a Mediterranean cruise departing from Venice to Barcelona. So before boarding the cruise ship we took a road trip around the northern part of Italy starting from Venice and covering Treviso, Vicenza, Verona, Milan, Parma, Bologna, and Ferrara.

The photographs taken during this road trip had been processed but never fully published so I have taken the opportunity to re-process these photos using the latest CaptureOnePro software system. I am always amazed when I go back through my photo catalogue and do some re-processing as I can usually get so much more out of the original RAW images using the most up to date software as well as my much improved processing workflow.

Treviso is a city in northeastern Italy with many canals. On the central Piazza dei Signori is the Palazzo dei Trecento, with battlements and vaulted arcades. The Fontana delle Tette is a 16th-century fountain that used to dispense wine. Nearby, the Duomo features a neoclassical facade, Romanesque crypt and a painting by Titian. The Civic Museums’ main site, the St. Catherine complex, has medieval frescoes.

The city is home to the headquarters of clothing retailer Benetton, Sisley, Stefanel, Geox, Diadora and Lotto Sport Italia, appliance maker De’Longhi, and bicycle maker Pinarello.

Like Venice, Treviso has canals, but unlike Venice does not have gondolas or more importantly the mad rushing tourists which makes it a very pleasant place to visit. Walking the many small streets traversing the few canals there are scenes you will see that remind you of a painting …. apart from the large crane that was in operation. It is not as touristic as Venice but has all the other great attributes such as wonderful Italian food and local wine. 

Treviso is also known for being the original production area of Prosecco wine and radicchio and is thought to have been the origin of the popular Italian dessert Tiramisù.

Like many Italian towns, it had a central piazza, Piazza dei Signori, where we could enjoy some local food and wine.
