RUNNING IN THE GREEN HEART OF TREVISO, THE “RESTERA”

Are you looking for some peaceful time, in contact with nature, away from the city traffic ?
The river Sile, is the best place to go. The pathway is best known as restera, close to the city centre, and follows the riverbank from Treviso to Casier .
You can enjoy a walk, have a run. You can learn canoing and hire canoes or small boats . And of course take pictures and enjoy the scenery.

The restera is really beautiful, especially in spring and autumn, and generally in all seasons where the slow pace of each season reflects the beauty of nature and the spirit of this beautiful place.

You will meet lots of animals like ducks, swans, coots, herons and hares, a really nice experience for the children.

The restera is surrounded by green gardens, fields and woods, near the city. You will see abandoned listed buildings but charming at the same time.

Once upon a time big wooded boats dragged by horses and oxen would transport goods from Venice to Treviso .

Today you can still see traces of this ancient activity in the magical ” Cemetery Burch”, and you can see the stretch of water where the wooden boats were abandoned after the arrival of the transport by
road.

Walking along the Sile’ s riverbank you will encounter guard towers, villas and monasteries, you will reach the Laguna crossing ancient streets, ancient Roman buildings and large rural estates.
Immediately after the ancient site of Altino, the river reaches the North Laguna of Venice, a wetland unique in the world for its ecological characteristics as well as the islands that anticipate the city of Serenissima .
Here you will find taverns with an ancient flavour, cottages, inns where you can enjoy a glass of traditional organic wine or enjoy fresh fish and seafood. Not to mention traditional eels and polenta, symbol of the river Sile.
The restera is a continuous and extraordinary discovery even for the locals, who visit it on a regular basis. The restera is full of adventure and mystery, a walk between ancient experiences and  flavours. A must see!!!!
