Sniff the walls: they smell of history. Look your feet: you are walking on a glorious engineeristic great work of the Ist century B.C.: the roman street.
By that time, old cardo maximus of Tarvisium, today Calmaggiore is the main street of the historical centre of Treviso.
From Piazza dei Signori to the Cathedral, this street is characterized by a heterogeneity of palaces; from the gushing medieval style to some remakes of the Renaissance.
Telling that a walk along this street is a must, I think it’ s even a little mocking: the walk under the colonnades carries out among a gaze to the shiny shops windows and the discover, by chance, of wondeful frescos on the portico’s vaults.
As we are true Italians, we love enjoying the city “tasting” the culture: for the most romantics an ice-cream or a hot chocolate in one of the tempting patisseries , or for the gluttonest a delicious Mozzarella cheese sandwich at Osteria della Gigia.
The workshops, historicals and moderns, give a touch of achronicity to the street: renowned Italian griffs, book shops, herbalist’s shops and also many artisans who carry on with passion and dedication the old trades: cobblers, barbers, glass’ artists and tiers. Making them a visit means to come back to the ’60s, nothing has changed since then.
Without any doubt, Calmaggiore is able to give you the must-to-do walk to fully enjoy , among present and past, in a timeless dimension.
