I am visiting Venice and Treviso in early November, and I thought I'd post here to see if anyone has any recommendations for me.
I am going to be staying in Treviso, and from what I've read and heard, this could be an advantage for me food-wise, since it's likely to be a lot less touristy than Venice proper. I am mostly looking for less expensive restaurants, though a mid-range type place could be nice for one night (probably don't want to eat anywhere that will cost more than 30 euros per person, and for cheaper meals 10-20 would be better)
I arrive on a Saturday night (in time for late dinner, or at least dessert), and will be there Sunday-Tuesday. So here are some specific questions I have, so I'd really appreciate answers to any/all of them.
1) I am considering taking a day trip out to the countryside from Treviso - probably this would be a Sunday. Are there any fun towns/villages that are easy to get to by train that might be nice foodwise (or otherwise)? Any agroturismo recommendations, or farms/cheese/meat/vineyards/etc. that are worth visiting? Probably we would be traveling by public transit only....
2) Best ice cream in Venice and/or Treviso?
3) Are there any foods that are particularly worth seeking out in Venice (as opposed to Treviso?) Or is it so touristy that I'm really better off eating in Treviso, where I'm staying anyway.
4) Is Padova worth a visit for food? And how would it be going there on a Sunday?
5) Best inexpensive restaurants (for any meal) in Treviso/Venice?
6) Best bakeries/desserts in Treviso (I read in a chowhound post that Treviso is known for sweets I think)
7) Any particular markets that are worth visiting, in either Venice or Treviso? Perhaps we will end up cooking one of our meals, since I'll be staying in an apt. with a kitchen.
That's about all for now, any help would be greatly appreciated! I am quite excited for this trip, and I'll be sure to report back
