About the tour

The City of Treviso has been founded 2600 years ago, and has been a really important city in the northern part of Italy, especially during the medieval time. Today Igor will take you from a the Duomo di Treviso , a building dated back on the 6 century and totally restyle on the 1800, we will go around to see all the different restoration and styles that went through. We will admire houses with the pottery decorations, during the middle ages we used to have many tower houses to protect the city from invaders, we will be able to admire one of those still in a great shape! Your guide will show you the frescoes of the "urbs picta" including the house of the executioner, with really interesting design on the facade! A great postcard opportunity will be in the oldest street of the city, in this street nothing has changed for the past 700 years, the architecture is just delightful! The tour will end up with the stories of the girls that used to wash the cloths for the rich Venetians, the city of Treviso looks like Venice in a way and today you'll have the proof of it. Treviso is the city of water and frescoes and you'll have a great opportunity to see a good bunch of them today!


Meet your local guide

Igor

In Italy there is a special type of high school dedicated to tourism, and languages. Igor has been working in this sector since he graduated in 1996 . He started in a hotel near Venice, then moved to one in London, which was an amazing experience. When he returned to Italy, Igor worked for Globus and travelled all over Europe, from Portugal to Russia and the North Cape to Greece. Seeing so many places was great and Igor learned a lot meeting people from all over the world. In 2007, his grand tour ended, and Igor came home to Venice, where he qualified to work as a guide in the Veneto region (yes, in Italy you need a licence to work as a guide). He loves taking my guests around this wonderful region, showing them all the fantastic treasures that exist there.

Igor has been guiding since Jun 1997

Discovering Treviso with Igor has been a great experience. I'll certainly visit for real once we're all able to travel again. Cleo joined Igor today as it was their anniversary. Such a lovely couple, sharing the frescoes, special buildings and romantic canals of their very real City of Treviso. Tornerò!

Beautiful shots but for me toooo much chatter between them, noisy interruptions and not enough historical/ geographical input. But thank you to both of them
