Visiting Treviso

Yesterday I took a trip to Treviso as well as visited the reopened Museo di Santa Caterina. It has a skillful archaeological department as well as some interesting paintings. Most of the written explanations are inwards Italian alone - a shame given that the alone visitors I saw yesterday afternoon were English linguistic communication as well as French speakers. As good equally admiring the town inwards the sunshine , I also flora my agency into the hidden Sala del Capitolo , with the Church of San Nicolo. You truly cause got to move bold as well as larn inwards the religious seminary side past times side door - the frescoes past times Tomaso da Modena are worth the effort. New updated data volition move available really presently on our Treviso page.

Cat on the Giudecca , concluding week
And inwards Venice...
In Venice the film festival has seemed pretty unimpressive. The ornamentation of the top dog edifice - ripped white sheets with lions emerging - is underwhelming. The atmospheric condition is yet hot as well as sunny , though , as well as then festival-goers tin ever select the beach instead. (Read well-nigh the Lido).

Far to a greater extent than interesting has been my recent exploration of the Giudecca , a curious isle with all sorts of hidden alleys as well as picturesque corners. If you lot cause got a few days inwards Venice it's worth catching the vaporetto over hither for a panoramic drinkable or repast , as well as a wander around.
