Treviso is called the city of art and water. There definitely is plenty of water, and it runs through the city fast and looks clean and green from the mountains. The art you need to search a bit more for, and the museums are sparse because 4 of the 5 are under "renovation", for how long, who knows. The Austrians then took over, and during WWI and WWI it was very much destroyed. Rebuilt to original condition is amazing.

The river runs under a number of buildings and was used to transport goods in the old days. It is also a connection to the moat that surrounds the city. The town is a vibrant working culture and is home of Benetton fashionwear.
This is the main square. It was first used by the Romans as an administration location to manage the city. The palace built was for the administrator, and later the tower was added. This city has been a center of trade and takeovers since 80BC. Last major control was Austrian; prior to that was French, and under Venice rule in early 1300's; even Attila the Hun had his hand in here-plus of course the Romans.
