The Piave River: birdwatching, canoeing and lots of other ways to enjoy Veneto’s most enchanting river.
Find out about the activities on offer in and around the Piave River, where the pace of life follows natural rhythms!
The Piave River is considered sacred by the nation of Italy due to the role it played in the First World War. It winds its way through the Prosecco Superiore Hills, carving out the shape of the land.
The people of Treviso flock to its banks to cool down on hot summer days. Herons nesting and spring blooms bursting colourfully into life are just two of the spellbinding sights to savour here in the Prosecco Superiore Hills!
The Garzaia conservation area is officially classed as a protected site by LIPU (the Italian Bird Protection League). In the summer months, you can see herons nesting there and watch migrating species, which often stop off for a break.
Take a stroll in the Settolo Basso Park, which is rich in biodiversity. Birds from wetland habitats and Alpine rivers stop off in the park’s resurgences. A little further downstream, after Vidor, is the Fontane Bianche nature reserve. You might see people canoeing in the swirling water of the Piave River. If you’re lucky, perhaps they will take you along for an adventurous new experience!
