Treviso is at the heart of Italian rugby, and now the city will welcome Japan during the Summer Nations Series

With the 2023 Rugby World Cup just around the corner and the 2024 Guinness Six Nations less than six months away, there is no better time to host a match between two of rugby’s most exciting international sides. 

Fans of both teams and neutrals from around the world will descend on Stadio Comunale di Monigo at the end of August to watch this fascinating fixture. 

So, with this in mind, let’s have a look at everything Treviso has to offer ahead of the 2023 Summer Nations Series

Main attractions 

Move over Venice, Treviso‘s one-of-a-kind architecture is something to behold. 

The city is home to a delightful network of man-made canals that run through the historic city centre and connect the River Sile and River Botteniga. 

Visitors will also fall in love with the Fontana delle Tette, a 16th-century fountain that used to dispense wine.

There is also the Palazzo dei Trecento, one of Treviso‘s oldest buildings. 

Tourists can taste the world-famous sparkling wine produced in the Prosecco Hills, and there are plenty of different tours to choose from. 

And Sports fans can watch Benetton Rugby play, or cheer on Treviso FBC 1993, the city‘s Serie D football team. 

The food and drink

No matter where you are in Italy, you do not have to look far to find a top-quality meal. 

Whether you are on the hunt for fine dining or a quick snack, Treviso has something for you. 

If you are looking for something a bit special, why not leave the city centre and visit San Martino? 

The restaurant has a Michelin Star and is widely regarded as one of the best spots for miles around. 

Those looking for something a bit closer to Treviso itself should head to Antica Torre.

This Italian restaurant is well known for its superb seafood and outstanding service, but it is also reasonably priced and welcoming to tourists. 

The Venue

Stadio Comunale di Monigo is the home of Top 14 side Benetton Rugby and will be the venue when Italy host Japan in the Summer Nations Series

Opened in 1973, the ground underwent refurbishments in 2018 and is located just to the North West of the city

It has a capacity of 5000, but temporary stands can be set up alongside the two existing ones to double its attendance to 10,000.

Italy may be more used to Stadio Olimpico, but their under-20s side has fond memories of the ground. 

They made history when beating England 6-0 at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo during the 2022 Six Nations Under-20s – their first ever U20 Six Nations win over England.

How Do I Get There? 

Fans need to get bus route 9 from Treviso Centrale railway station to get to the ground. 

Alternatively, visitors with a car can drive down the Viale Europa to get to the venue. 

However, it is a bit of a walk from the city centre, so be sure to leave plenty of time if you’re getting there on foot.
