A short journey from Venice is Treviso, an often overlooked, but absolutely magical Italian town. As part of the Veneto in the north east of Italy, Treviso offers all the charm that has made the region famous: Cobblestone streets, romantic sights, amazing food, and beautiful canals. Being overshadowed by neighbouring Venice, however, it also offers a break from tourist lines, and overpriced souvenirs.
It’s the aromatic and tasty snowfall Italians pour on almost everyone of their “first courses”, be it a soup, pasta, risotto or polenta. It’s the ingredient of other popular dishes, often served as a second or a main course: meat loaf, meatballs, omelette, suppli… and it’s obviously delicious when tasted alone, or with just a hint of honey: it’s Grana Padano, one of the best cheeses produced in Italy.
Located in the Veneto region within the small province of Padua lies the serene town of Abano Terme. Surrounded on the outskirts by low green hills and an opening welcome gate that reads, ‘Welcome. Please avoid disturbing noises’.
For the most of us, Verona means Romeo and Juliet. For many of us, this town also means “the two gentlemen”. There actually are two gentlemen from the area around Verona, and they are Recioto and Amarone, two DOCG wines from an area called Valpolicella.
