The tiramisu dessert was invented in Piazza Ancilotto in the early 60s
On October 15, 2010, the tiramisu recipe, as it is made by Treviso’s quaint Le Beccherie restaurant, was officially filed with the Italian Academy of Cuisine. It really originated in the late 50s, when Ms Alba Campeol and Mr Roberto “Loli” Linguanotto concocted the recipe at that very restaurant, thus giving life to the dessert we have all come to appreciate today.
Tiramisu and much more
Cocktails in Treviso are called spritz, that is, a Prosecco and Campari bitter, or equivalent thereof, spritzer that is usually savoured with cicchetti snacks. Every reputable inn and tavern in the old-town center serves them. And because it’s made with Prosecco, it really complements any food. And Prosecco is really Treviso’s favorite drink. You can also try the local radicchio, that is, chicory, in January, and the luscious asparagus in May. These are just some of the delicacies of this magnificent land.
Villages, castles and villas
The medieval villages and the Venetian villas that bejewel this borderland provide an immense cultural, architectural and historical heritage. Just to name a few: Treviso, Cison di Valmarino, Castelfranco, Conegliano, Castelbrando, Asolo, Vittorio Veneto, Oderzo, the Castle of Roncade, the Rotonda di Badoere, the Castle of San Salvatore, Villa Emo, Villa Tiepolo Passi, Villa Giol, Villa Contarini Nenzi, Villa Condulmer, Villa Tramonti, Ca’ Zenobio, Villa Braida, Villa Giovannina, Villa Barbaro and Villa dei Cedri.
Some truly historically important people, like Antonio Canova and Giorgione were born here, whereas others, like Andrea Palladio and Tommaso da Modena moved here and made it their home. And there were many more, like Giovanni Comisso, Mario Botter, Pope Pius X, Toni Benetton, Andrea Zanzotto and Mario Del Monaco.
Breathtaking landscapes set among majestic mountains, restless seas and many UNESCO World Heritage Sites
One can cycle around almost the entire province of Treviso. By following the Treviso-Ostiglia biking path and the Natural Park of the River Sile, you will reach the Venice Lagoon. Or, if the spectacular Dolomites are your thing, just go across the Prosecco Hills, the Montello foothills and the Monte Grappa. Either journey is well worth it.
