About the village

Cison di Valmarino, located in the heart of the province of Treviso, is a treasure chest of history, culture and nature nestled among the green hills of Treviso. Charming and elegant, the village is counted among the "Most Beautiful Villages in Italy" and boasts the Orange Flag awarded by the Italian Touring Club, a distinctive sign of environmental quality and hospitality.

History and origins
The historical roots of Cison di Valmarino go back to ancient times, with evidence dating back to the Middle Paleolithic. Its place name appears to derive from the Latin word caesum, meaning "cut," probably in reference to the ancient reclamation and deforestation of the area. The village boasts significant finds that attest to its importance as early as the Bronze Age and during the Roman period, when it was crossed by the Claudia Augusta Altinate road, which connected northern Italy with Germany.

Over the centuries, Cison di Valmarino has been under Longobard influence and played a relevant role during the rule of the Most Serene Republic of Venice, which established the seat of the podestà in this very place. The vestiges of that glorious past are still tangible today in the urban fabric and imposing architecture of the village.

The Castle of Cison di Valmarino and the village
Dominating the village skyline, Castelbrando is the most representative sign of that medieval heritage that still permeates the atmosphere. Erected as a fortification in the 12th century, it has seen the succession of illustrious families, including the Da Camino and Brandolini families, the latter true lords of the place for centuries. Today the castle has been transformed into a prestigious accommodation facility, where luxurious rooms blend with historical evidence, and where guests can stay and attend events, weddings and conferences.

Walking through the streets of Cison di Valmarino means immersing oneself in a suspended dimension, where time seems to flow more slowly. Piazza Roma is the hub of the village, with its elegant Archpriest's Church of the Virgin Saint Mary of the Assumption and Saint John the Baptist, the town hall and the La Loggia theater, once the seat of the county court and now home to the Radio Museum. Characteristic town streets come alive with tourists and villagers, creating a lively and hospitable village atmosphere.

Mills Way and natural landscapes
The route of the Via dei Mulini, or Via dell'Acqua, is an invitation to discover Cison's natural treasures. Following the Rujo stream, visitors can explore woods and river areas where ancient mills tell the local economic and social history. The Bosco delle Penne Mozze forest, in particular, is a tribute to fallen Alpine soldiers, enriching the trail with meaning and memory.

Live Crafts and Traditions
One of the village's most attractive events is the Artigianato Vivo, an event that transforms the village into an open-air workshop every August. Artisans work their creations to the public, keeping alive the traditions and manual skills that have shaped local culture. It is an opportunity for past and present to meet, encapsulated in a festival that enhances the sense of community.

Food and wine and local products
Cison di Valmarino is also a reference point for lovers of good food and authentic flavors. Surrounded by the Prosecco hills, the village is ideal for those who want to deepen their knowledge of local wines and IGP and DOCG products, ranging from wine cellars to the discovery of traditional Treviso dishes.

Reaching Cison di Valmarino is easy, either by car or by public transportation, and the village sets itself up as an ideal destination for a journey of discovery, relaxation and cultural insight. Whether it is a historical itinerary, a nature trek or a day dedicated to crafts and taste, Cison di Valmarino welcomes its visitors with the promise of an authentic and unforgettable experience.
