Day trip from venice

We will be visiting Venice for the 11th time this summer and fancy a train journey to another place. We are considering Vicenza,Padua or Treviso. We're not into churches or art galleries just somewhere picturesque with a cafe culture and easy to get to by train.

Many thanks.

You can't miss with any of the three you mentioned. I think I would choose Treviso for what you describe. The walk is not long ant all from the station to the lovely center and the wondow shopping is great. And it's a very short ride.

I have also been many times to Venice. We have day tripped twice to both Padova and to Treviso but only once to Vicenza.

Last month we spent 2 weeks in Venice with our one day trip to Conegliano but it would not be high on my list to repeat.

Don’t forget Ferrara. Only about 45 minutes from Venice.

Got to say that this is an unimpressive link. No real detail. Not helpful.

Sorry, Tripadvisor can be so annoying and inefficient. My comment was referring to posting 3, from MonteCD
