The city of Treviso is situated on a flat plain bordered by the encompassing Gulf of Venice and looming Italian Alps. This provincial capital is a prominently populated municipality located within Veneto in northern Italy and renowned for its worldwide contributions to the retail and dining entities. The Piave River flows down from the Alps alongside the northeastern border of the city.
Treviso contains a variety of botanical gardens and Romanesque monuments including the Orto Botanico Conservativo Carlo Spegazzini and the Church of San Nicolò. The city is historically remarked as one of the initial creators of Prosecco, a popular Italian white wine variety made from Glera grapes, as well as the renowned dessert tiramisu.
The main public transit hub of Treviso is the Treviso Centrale railway station from which Trenitalia trains service routes to the three major nearby cities of Venice, Udine and Trieste. The Treviso Airport is the secondary airport of Venice situated outside of the city offering low-cost domestic and international flight options.
Venetian rule beginning in the 1300s led to fortifications, waterways, and booming economic markets that attributed greatly to the success of the city of Treviso. The Treviso fish market established during that period maintains public appeal to this day.
