Discovering Castlefranco Veneto :
Castlefranco Veneto known to the locals as simply ‘Casteo’ in their local dialect is a quaint city surrounded by a medieval castle and walls that were built by the people of Treviso in 1211.
This is the second time that I ever visited this charming town and the first that I have ever done so while being immersed in fog..
The fog or ‘nebbia’ added a touch of mystery and silence that I actually found comforting. A touch of holiday decor amongst buildings that were built thousands of years ago was simply magical to see, slightly hidden by the fog, it just sort of ‘pops’ out at you.
Castlefranco Veneto makes a great half day trip from Treviso. Surely, you can visit this city center in a couple of hours and you can see a few other cities close by such as Asolo which is known as ‘The pearl of Treviso’ and also Cittadella which is another walled city.
