Palazzo dei Trecento war Sitz des Großen Rates, der aus 300 Mitglieder bestand. Er zählt zu den ältesten erhaltenen Kommunalpalästen Italiens und war Vorbild für viele andere im Veneto und in Oberitalien. Erbaut wahrscheinlich 1213. Er beherbergt einen großen Saal (46,5 x 20 m) mit offenem Dachstuhl, Zugang über die Außentreppe an der Piazza Indipendenza.

The fourteenth century building is located in the heart of Treviso. A totally frescoed room where there are temporary exhibitions. I could see the one on the playing cards ... Wonderful. Free entry. Date of my visit: 7/03/20

Palace of the fourteenth century is the symbol of the city, as well as the seat of the city council. Unfortunately, just as the seat of the council, it is not easily visited, if not during exhibitions and events. Another fantastic feature is the underlying loggia with large arches that support the building. Must see inside walls painted with the insignia of all the "Dear" medieval

Walking in the streets of Italy, there are many churches, castles and history relics. Before we have dinner in the evening that we walk here. Streets are spacious, distance between the buildings and people can make you feel comfortable, and there are not many cars In the evening Many people is walking the dog here. It's not a famous sightseeing spot but still charming for me

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
