Treviso ( French: Trévise, Latin: Tarvisium) is a city in northeastern Italy, and the capital of the province of the same name. It is in the eastern part of the Veneto region, north of Venezia and south of Belluno. The city itself has 82,399 inhabitants (2001), with about 170,000 inhabitants in the wider metropolitan area, while the province has 795,264 inhabitants.
Treviso is on the line connecting Venezia with Udine. A one way ticket to Venezia is less than €3 for the 30 km and half an hour trip.
Treviso is served by Venezia (Treviso) Airport (TSF) , which is mainly used by low cost companies like Ryanair.
In order to get from the airport to the Treviso Train Station (Treviso Centrale), you must get the line 6 bus .
Treviso is connected through the national highway network
- A4 - Torino-Milano-Venezia-Trieste
- A13 - Bologna-Padova
Many national/regional roads originate in or pass through the city.
Treviso is also connected with Venice through the Terraglio SS13 main road characterized by a beautiful green landscape and ancient villas advisable for easy biking tours and itineraries for cycling holidays.
Discovering the city on foot is very easy. The historic center is actually quite small, so you can go around in the narrow streets.
The local buses are ok, but by night there are quite few. Fares are €1 within Treviso Comune and €1.50 ouside.
It is better to avoid driving your own car, as there are lots of oneway streets in Treviso and a oneway ringroad around the walled city.
With the local rental bike shops you can make a good excursion at Palladian Villas. Ask locals for the Restera, a nice track all along Sile River. If you are brave, you can reach the Venetian Lagoon.
