Enjoying your holiday
Remember that enjoying your holiday does not just mean visiting churches and museums or seeing monuments, but also learning about the local people’s customs and habits, wandering down little alleyways, looking at balconies, discovering hidden gems and seeking out beautiful views.
Our settlements are the perfect size for human exploration and the best way of getting around them is still “Shanks’ pony”! Walking is the ideal way to ensure that you do not miss out on even a fraction of the local atmosphere. It will allow you to take time out to listen to the locals chattering in dialect and watch their hand gestures and facial expressions.
You will stumble upon some marvellous experiences that you will never forget!
Below are a few pointers to help you as you venture out to enjoy your holiday.
The climate on the plain is typical of the Veneto part of the Po Valley.
The cold winter is mainly concentrated in the period between late December and mid February, with temperatures ranging from 0°C to 6-8°C.
The summer months of July and August are hot, with temperatures of between 16-18°C and 28-30°C.
The conditions in the piedmont area are similar, but the average temperatures are slightly lower and there is more precipitation.
In the winter, there is snow on the mountain peaks, where the climate is cooler.
Are you hungry or thirsty?
After travelling far and wide to marvel at our artistic wonders and natural beauty, you will need a break!
It will be the perfect opportunity to stop and enjoy the delicious local dishes. Everywhere you go, you will find somewhere to rest your weary legs and refresh... the spirit!
Start off with a nice “ombra de vin” (glass of wine) and a few “cicchetti” (snacks) to go with it: food and wine are a key part of the culture in the Treviso area and by savouring them you will be taking home a little bit of our history.
If you want to have lunch in a restaurant or trattoria, or if you would like to eat a pizza for your midday meal, the best time is between 12.30 pm and 2.00 pm.
The times for dinner are more flexible: they start at around 7.30 pm – 8.00 pm and – if you end up in a pub – it is possible to eat until midnight.
Please note that the service charge (“coperto”) is normally included in the price of a meal. Although tips are always appreciated, they are not obligatory and can be left at your discretion!
Bars are the places to go for a quick bite to eat throughout the day. Early on, they will be full of people enjoying a steaming cappuccino and a hot pastry, while around mid-morning an espresso can give you an extra burst of energy. Make sure you don’t miss out on a slice of tiramisu in the hometown of the most famous dessert in the world.
The night is young!
We hope that you will live life to the full during your time here.
We have just one request: make sure your enjoyment is not detrimental to your health or that of others.
There are lots of nightspots in the Province of Treviso. In the town centres they normally stay open until 1 or 2 o’clock in the morning, while the night clubs on the outskirts of town may keep going until 3.30 am or 4.00 am.
Please remember that smoking is forbidden inside public places.
When you enter most venues, you will be given a card that you must use for ordering drinks inside. In some places it is obligatory to order at least one drink.
If you will be driving after your evening out in a club, you must not drink. You would put yourself and others at risk! Please respect the highway code!
Unfortunately, the time will come when you have to leave…
You might like to take home a useful souvenir from your holiday by buying one or more of the many products made in the workshops and factories that make Treviso’s industriousness famous all over the world.
In addition to our culinary delights, all sorts of eyewear, furniture, textiles, sportswear, footwear and household appliances are “Made in Treviso”.
You would have something in your home to remind you of the Province of Treviso every day!
Please note that most food shops are closed on Wednesday afternoons and that the other stores in town centres will be closed on one morning of the week, with the actual day varying from town to town.
We recommend asking in the tourist offices for details.
