Get around

On foot

Discovering the city on foot is very easy. The historic center is actually quite small, so you can go around in the narrow streets.


By bus

bus are ok, but they run easily daytime, by night there is few buses... number 6 from Treviso Airport going to Treviso Railway station. they are very cheap, indeed, 1 euro in Treviso 'comune', 1.50 ouside the comune (Council)

By car

better avoid car, there are lots of oneway streets in Treviso and a one ring way around the walled city.

By bike

With the local rental bike shops you can make a good excursion at Palladian Villas.But ask locals for the Restera... a nice track all along Sile River. If you brave, you can reack the Venetian Lagoon.
