Il Piave il Dicembre

Il Piave is a river that runs from the Alps and flows southeast for 137 miles (220km) into the Adriatic Sea near the city of Venice. 
With 137 miles of flowing water, there are many stops along the way to bathe or swim in the Summer time, or go for a hike in the Fall/Winter time. 

Many wars have been fought on the Piave. 

Battaglia del Solstizio 
 Battaglia di Mezzo Giugno
 Seconda Battaglia del Piave

If you are lucky enough you can find old weapons used in the wars/battles mentioned above. 

An interesting place to be to say the least. 

In the summer the Piave is full of people taking a dip to cool themselves from the hot, humid days. 
In the Winter you will find wild boars walking around, among other wild animals. 

Here are a few more photos of our trip to Il Piave in Dicembre

Couldn't have asked for a more Beautiful Winter Day ~ 

If you come for a visit be sure to visit Il Piave ~

Culture in Treviso

Here is a great video I found about  my adopted city of Treviso. 
Learn more about where I live and the culture that I am so easily adjusting to. 
I hope this video gives you all the more reason to visit such a lovely, charming city. 

Hope to see you all soon in Treviso. Let me know if you are planning a visit anytime soon. Would love to meet with you and have a coffee, or better yet a glass of Prosecco.
