Mura di Treviso



Walking along the "Mura" is one of my favorite things to do in Treviso. 

After a BIG Italian Lunch, there's nothing better than taking a walk along the walls of Treviso to help one digest. 

It's been quite a long time since Treviso has been threatened by medieval invaders; the walls still stand strong and tall, only used now for a bit of history and walking ~ 

Here are some photos I took walking along the city's walls on a relaxing Sunday afternoon..

Enjoy

 The city surrounded by water "City of Water" 



 Spring is in the air ~

 Love the Italian rooftops ~ 

 What a beautiful view while walking.. 

 A couple of "Nutria" also known as the River Rat 
 I love seeing wild animals in their natural habitat.. That being said, I'll never forget when I first saw a Nutria, I shouted, "Oh, look a Beaver, a Beaver" Haha, only to find out later that this is not a Beaver but a rather large River Rat ~ 


 I love this view from atop the wall  ~ Surrounded by nature and wild animals ~ 
 A pair of River Rats and a Guinea Fowl " Faraona" 

 The city of Treviso built this beautiful habitat for the animals ~ 



 Smile! Strike a pose for the Camera ~ People from Treviso are so friendly and welcoming :) You can see for yourself in this photo~ And no, I don't know the three men saying Hi :)
