ON HORSEBACK OR THE WATERWAYS...
There is no better way of coming into contact with art and breathing in the wonders of nature than with the relaxing pace of a nice walk. One thing that the old town centres and the mountain trails have in common is that the culture and clean air can be enjoyed if you travel by “Shanks’ pony”! Talking about equines, getting about on horseback is another marvellous way of exploring the local area. Feel free to ask the local tourist offices for details of riding schools that will be able to help you. If you prefer to travel on water, you will be pleased to know that there are three rivers of national importance – both in terms of their history and their natural environments – in the Province of Treviso: the Piave, the Sile and the Livenza. Do not miss out on the opportunity to get to know all of their delights.
TRAVELLING BY MOTOR HOME
