Vittorio Veneto is the symbol of peace after the First World War, which ended with the November 4th 1918 battle of the same name, the town was created joining Ceneda and Serravalle and was named after King Vittorio Emanuele II.
Vittorio Veneto lies on the slopes of Treviso’s Prealpi, is protected by the mild hills all around and flown through by the quiet river Meschio. Serravalle in the northern part and has always had a strategic position for trade and communication. Ceneda was declared episcopal city in 743 and was ruled Count-Bishops until 1768, thus remaining independent from the Serenissima.
Vittorio Veneto was granted the title “Artistic town” thanks to its excellent artistic, historic and architectural heritage, which often becomes the setting for music events. The town is a proud holder of another title – “Music town” – being the home town of Lorenzo Da Ponte, a famous librettist of Mozart, who authored renowned opera librettos such as “Così fan tutte”, “Le nozze di Figaro” and “Don Giovanni”.
The town is included in the Prosecco DOCG production area, and is one of the most important milestones along the “Strada del Prosecco e dei Colli Conegliano e Valdobbiadene” (“Road for Prosecco and the Wines of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Hills”). The hills dedicated to vineyards are the ideal landscape for walks, horse rides and for those who like riding mountain bikes and cycling holidays.
Vittorio Veneto is the ideal base to visit all the most important Venetian cities, namely Venice, Padua, Verona, Treviso and the most beautiful mountains in the world – the Dolomites; all this saving money and without sacrificing any comfort.
