Treviso, situated between Portogruaro and Venice (Venezia), is a prosperous provincial town with Roman origins. The city flourished during the Middle Ages, when it minted its own coinage. After annexation by Venice in 1389 it assumed strategic importance as the guardian of the Republic's northwestern frontier. The city walls date from the period of Venetian domination. A single bombing raid in 1944 destroyed almost half of the city, but much has been restored, and what now remains is a charming town of balconied houses and porticoed streets criss-crossed by picturesque canals. Treviso is known by two other names, Citta' d'acqua (City of Water), derived from the numerous canals that loop through town, offshoots of the rivers Sile and Botteniga, and Citta' Dipinta (Painted City), derived from the frescoed facades of Treviso's buildings.Treviso - is described by poets as a città cortese ("courteous city"), a calm and peaceful atmosphere that induced 18th-Century Venetian aristocrats to choose the Treviso area as their ideal vacation spot.

The Regional Natural Park of Sile strikes the eye as it moves along the entire length of the river, here traversing a variety of landscapes: humid and marshy areas close to the source, tortuous and rough parts nearer to Treviso, and lagoon landscapes near the estuary. The diversity of landscapes and ecosystems is the perfect habitat for a rich variety of avifauna and wonderful little natural oases, like that in Cervara.

Finally, the northwestern section is characterized by various peaks that slowly transform into green hills, complete with vineyards and olive groves. Amongst these is the Montello Peak, a mountain of glacial origins, wholly-covered with oak trees and custodian of a precious history both ancient and recent. The heavily-wooded Altopiano (Plateau) del Consiglio is also known as “Bosco della Serenissima” (the Woods of the Most Serene Republic), given that it was the main source of wood for the building of the Venetian Repubic’s ships.
