Treviso, the provincial capital and known as the “friendly city”. In the old town, it surrounded by mighty walls, in Piazza Duomo stands the majestic Cathedral of St. Peter with its seven domes and a complex layering of architectural styles, due to the numerous restructurings suffered at different times. To visit is the Museo Civico Luigi Bailo where is exposed a archaeological collection, an interesting picture gallery with works by the great Venetian artists and a collection of modern art. Piazza dei Signori is the heart of the city surrounded by buildings, like the Gothic Palace of the fourteenth century; built in 1210, was the seat of the Grand Council of the City. On the long side of the square is the neo-Gothic Palazzo del Podesta, dating from the nineteenth century, dominated by the large tower of the City. Behind the Palace there are the chapels of Saint Lucia and San Vito richly decorated. In the rest of the province it is advisable to go to Asolo, which surrounded by nature and in an enchanting landscape is called the “city of a hundred horizons”. Here you can see the Castle of Queen Cornaro and Renaissance architecture as Villa Contarini of the Armenians and the House Longobarda (Asolo), Rovero Villa (San Zenone degli Ezzelini) and Villa Maser, designed by Palladio, with the adjoining Temple.
