Venice Tips, Personal Experience and your Guide to Venice Italy
Does the city Treviso sounds familiar? Some European low budget carriers will arrive at Treviso Airport. Maybe that’s why you know and you have used this as a hub to Venice.
But its a city
which you can easily use for sightseeing and shopping! Beautiful squares,
palaces from the renaissance, painted churches and old waterways.
The town is not a second Venice. It doesn’t have Grand Canal or a St. Marks square. The city doesn’t have mass tourism and nog high rates for food, shopping and hotels. These are the advances.
From the Airport ‘Treviso-Sant ‘Angelo (TSF) most of the travelers are going straight by bus, taxi or train to Venice. Tourist ignore the hopeful promotional invitation around the airport to visit their city…
Downtown Treviso is tiny city with middle-aged walls, gates and streets. These are impressive sights! But the city has more.
