Castello San Salvatore

After all those sweet recipes that I have shared with all of you; I wanted to share one of my favorite places to burn all those calories off.. and that is in Susegana, a small picturesque city in the province of Treviso.

This is one of the places that I take all of my friends and family members that come to visit me. I highly reccomened coming here for a walk or even just a quick trip by car to see the 360 degree view of Venetian Landscape.

There are many things that I love about this Castle –

  1. A royal family still lives in the Castle.. How magical is that?
  2. The views
  3. A quick 20 minute drive from Treviso and you’ve arrived.
  4. It’s free.
  5. Vino

A few weekends ago, we decided to spend our Sunday morning which later turned into our Sunday afternoon walking amongst one of the largest castle’s in Northern Italy. And of course, I had to take a few photos and share with you all the beautiful surroundings during our walk..


Actually, towards the end of our walk, I found out that there is no vehicles allowed except for those that live near the castle. Ops. As we drove up and parked our car a little passed the castle..

We then decided to go for a walk, not knowing that later it would take us over two hours.. with a two year old ( no stroller) and two Italian miniature poodles.. haha, I laugh now..


You can see we parked our Jeep right across the street.. Less than a mile from the Castle. 





A crisp Spring morning.. 


Down the hill some furry friends were waiting for us.. 


We met some friendly and hungry donkey’s





On the way back up to the Castle, each tree was lined with a shrine of Madonna.

So, if you will be in Treviso for a few extra days, I highly recommend coming to check out the castle from the outside and have a walk. It is worth it. The inside is usually closed but will be held for special events such as vino in villa or if you’d like a private guided tour click this link or write to me and I can help arrange something for you.
