Vittorio Veneto

The view of the historical centre of the Vittorio Veneto TV near Venice Italy

In the past Vittorio Veneto was made up of two neighboring and autonomous centers of ancient origin, Ceneda and Serravalle, which in 1866 merged to form the current municipality of Vittorio Veneto.

Ceneda (to the south), of Roman or perhaps even pre-Roman origin, reached its maximum prestige in the 7th century, when it became an important Lombard duchy and, later, a bishopric.

Serravalle (to the north), in turn of Roman origin and fortified by kings and barbarian princes, in 1174 became a fief of the Da Camino and under the dominion of the Serenissima Republic of Venice (1337-1797) experienced a period of great splendor, testified by the extraordinary beauty and elegance of the buildings and squares still well preserved.

Rich in beautiful churches and ancient traditions, Vittorio Veneto is also a city sacred to the Italian homeland since the First World War ended there on 4 November 1918.

Positioned at the foot of the Italian Pre-Alps, Vittorio Veneto stands out with its hills against the mountainous arch that reaches the slopes of the Cansiglio Forest.
The mildness of the climate, therefore, together with the charm of natural and artistic beauties and the interest of ancient and recent historical memories, make this city one of the most evocative centers of the Veneto – Venice region.
