Day 6: Treviso and the Girasile

We mount our bike and pedal towards Treviso, where we have time to enjoy this splendid city made of river and canals, porticoes and beautiful squares. Following the Sile River we will notice the imposing banks that accompany the large bight on which the main river port of the Sile once stood. Over one hundred boats used to be able to moor here for the night. The route then follows cycle paths that run along the dykes and country roads until Lughignano with its elegant Romanesque church. The path continues alongside the river and numerous Venetian villas. On reaching Rivalta, the tall crenellated bell tower and the Torre Carrarese herald our imminent arrival in Casale sul Sile. From here we will continue to our hotel near Venice.
