The province of Treviso is crossed by two significant rivers: the Piave and the Sile. In addition to the capital city, sung by the poets as a "gracious city", also noteworthy are the picturesque towns of the province: Castelfranco Veneto, Vittorio Veneto, Asolo, Maser, Conegliano, Valdobbiadene, Montebelluna, Oderzo, Portobuffolè and Possagno.
The Natural Park of the Sile River offers a great naturalistic experience, concealing small populated areas of exceptional historic and artistic value, such as Paese, with its Casa Quaglia, bearing witness to one of the oldest architectural villa styles of the Treviso area. The religious traditions and numerous villas have characterized the history, culture and art of this province. Among the dwellings of particular interest is the 17th century Villa Albrizzi Franchetti in Preganziol, which became the center for an Academy and a destination visited by artists and poets such as Foscolo, Byron, Pindemonte and Canova.
In Montebelluna we are in the so called North-Western Marca. The area is characterized by mountains which slowly transform into green hills cultivated with vineyards, scattered with splendid townships such as Asolo and beautiful mansions such as the Barbaro di Maser villa, one of the greatest examples of the ingenuity of Andrea Palladio. The northern Marca is especially renowned for its production of Prosecco wine, whilst the town of Oderzo stands out in the eastern Marca, created as a pile-dwelling settlement of ancient Veneti, then transformed into a major town during the Roman era.
