Italy // Venice and the Veneto //

Eating, drinking and nightlife

Treviso has some excellent restaurants, many of which feature radicchio, the bitter red lettuce, and tiramisù, which as every local knows was invented here in the 1970s. The bars and cafés around the Pescheria, particularly along Via Palestro, are always buzzing, and those clustered beneath and around the Palazzo dei Trecento are good for people-watching. With a growing university population, Treviso’s nightlife is on the up, although the most popular places are still chic wine-bars rather than studenty hangouts.
