1) What to do in Treviso in one day? VISIT THE SQUARES AND PALACES
Let’s start our tour of the best place in Treviso: its historic center. When I say ‘best’, I don’t mean to take the credit for other attractions, but the heart of the city is, in fact, in its historic center: beautiful, rich in incredible palaces and with a delightful atmosphere!
The Squares and Palaces of Treviso …
The historic Piazza dei Signori (“Square of the Gentlemen”) is stunningly beautiful! Here you can admire the Palazzo dei Trecento (“Palace of the Three Hundred”), which used to be the site of municipal meetings. Also called the Palace of the Region, its construction began in 1185 and only finished in 1268, due to its annex building. The architecture draws our attention and it is impossible not to be speechless. This building extends across the square and joins the Palazzo Podesta (Podesta Palace), where the civic tower with its beautiful 48-meter high tower is located.
Palazzo Podestà was the seat of the Maggior Consiglio (Major Council) and was severely damaged during the bombing of Treviso, on April 7, 1944; after some restorations, it returned to its original shape. Another noteworthy Palace is the Palazzo Pretorio (seat of the City Hall), which was the first seat of the Municipal Library and Art Gallery of the city; it was built in 1847.
2) What to do in Treviso in one day? VISIT PESCHERIA AND THE SAN FRANCESO BRIDGE
From Palazzo Trecento, cross the porch and you will reach the so-called “water zone”, where the Sile River flows. Go ahead and you will be able to see the famous Pescheria, which is an island where the Treviso fish market is located. Here you can also contemplate the beautiful windmills and splendid architecture that present themselves in a unique way! Along the Cagnan Canal, you reach one of the most famous bridges in the city: the San Francesco Bridge.
3) What to do in Treviso in one day? VISIT THE SAN TOMASO DOOR AND THE CITY WALLS
Continue your tour and go ahead until you cross the entire San Francesco complex ; from here you will arrive at the most worked Venetian door in the city: San Tomaso Door. It is a Venetian-Lombard construction and presents us with a wonderful facade, full of details that show various trophies, coats of arms and carvings rich in details. From there, head to the charming city walls, which you can recognize from the entrance gate. The walls were built in the year 1509 and their main objective was to protect themselves from the attacks of Venice. They were integrated with a hydraulic system, which flooded the passage with the surrounding waters.
4) What to do in Treviso in one day? VISIT THE TREVISO DUOMO
It is impossible to talk about Treviso without mentioning its magnanimous Cathedral, which is located in Piazza Duomo (“Cathedral Square”), and was built on top of a primitive Christian temple, where its remains are still visible on Via delle Canoniche. Inside the Cathedral of Treviso, you can admire a painting by Titian, “The Annunciation”. The cathedral has seven domes, five of which are located in the central nave, and the other two in the chapels of the transept. In neoclassical style, it was dedicated to the apostle Saint Peter.

Leaving the Cathedral, head to the church of San Nicolò (St Nicholas), the second most important in the city! Twelve pillars embellish the majestic building, and its beautiful frescoes stand out. From there, return to the Duomo area and head to Calmaggiore, the most commercial street in Treviso. Here there are shops, bars, restaurants and more. It is a lively place! Entering a arcade on your left, head towards Piazza dei Signori again, but in another path. There you will find the incredible and famous Fontana delle Tette (“Fountain of the Breasts”) that, in the past, when there were parties in the city, distributed wine to residents.

Ah, about a few minutes from Piazza dei Signori, you will find Via Martiri della Libertà, where Loggia dei Cavalieri is located.
