An ancient link between the mountains, the plains and the sea, a meeting place of cultures, the city of Feltre has a wealth of art, history and beauty. To enter the old city, you have to climb up to Colle delle Capre through one of the ancient gates: Porta Imperiale, Porta Oria or Porta Pusterla.

Welcoming you at the top are the scenic Piazza Maggiore surrounded by the Castle of Alboino, the church of San Rocco, Lombardesque fountains and historic palaces; among them are Guarnieri Palace and Ragione Palace with the Sena Theatre, “La Piccola Fenice”. Branching off from the square are streets and lanes to stroll along with your chin up to admire the ancient buildings with fine frescoes, elegant mullioned windows and balconies.

Instead, at the foot of the hill are the Cathedral and Baptistery, and below the churchyard a 1,000-square-metre archaeological area tells the story of the ancient Roman town of Feltria.

The 3 museums in town are worth visiting: the Carlo Rizzarda Gallery of Modern Art, the Civic Archaeological Museum and the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art at the Old Bishopric.

Feltre’s surroundings are also rich in places to discover: from the Sanctuary of Saints Victor and Crown, to the numerous Venetian villas, to places of naturalistic interest, such as the Vincheto di Cellarda, Corlo Lake, and the Vette Feltrine peaks, to name a few.

A year-round tourist destination, Feltre is at its best the first weekend of August for the Palio. During the three-day festival, the city is transformed and time seems to rewind to take you back to medieval times. Amidst ladies, knights, drums, flag-wavers, historical costumes, horse races and contests of strength, the contrade of Castello, Duomo, Port’Oria and Santo Stefano compete for the precious Palio, which is painted each year by a different internationally renowned artist.
