Places to visit
Venice and the seaside of Jesolo are just minutes away from McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Noventa di Piave in Noventa di Piave along the Venice-Trieste motorway; Treviso and Padua are also just a little over a half-hour drive: the shopping+tourism formula has never offered so much!
Noventa and the Lower Piave River Area
Noventa is located on the left bank of the Piave, the “river of the Italians”, which in this location is a sight for the eyes with all its flowing charm: a two-kilometre river walk, the boat bridge, the stele as a tribute to Ernest Hemingway being wounded in the Great War. And in the municipal museum of this town, a crossroads of art and history, it is possible to admire previous archaeological finds and two splendid mosaics from the Roman era. These finds were discovered at the archaeological site of San Mauro which also has a religious establishment dating back to the Middle Ages that was constructed on the overlayered remains of two previous settlements, one from the late-ancient period (4th century A.D.) and one from the Roman period, dating back to the second half of the first century B.C. The church of San Mauro is a must-see, with its suggestive fresco by Tiburzio Donadon and the “villas” around the centre, magnificent residences of the noble families of Venice, “La Serenissima”.http://www.noventartestoria.it/
"La Serenissima" and its lagoon
The most beautiful city in the world is thirty minutes away from McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Noventa di Piave: Venice, sublime place whose magic is a source of inspiration for all the arts, fashion and the film industry. Nobody in the world has not dreamt of visiting it, to get lost amongst its never-ending canals, bridges and tiny islands or to become enmeshed in the sensuality of its Carnival time, in the harmony of its huge square dominated by St. Mark’s campanile and basilica and by the Ducal palace, by the majesty of the Grand Canal and Rialto bridge.
You can breathe in the air of one thousand years of extremely refined culture amongst the innumerable “campi” and “campielli” (squares and open areas), amongst the aristocratic palazzos that inspired none other than Shakespeare, Thomas Mann, Vivaldi, Tiepolo, Luchino Visconti and Federico Fellini, to name a few. Culture is alive and well and spread all over the world thanks to the “Venice Biennale” and to the Venice film festival.
Like a splendid diadem, with Venice as the incomparable diamond, the Venetian lagoon offers visitors unique colours and atmospheres: the islands of Burano, Torcello and Murano with its “artistic glass” made throughout the centuries for all the royalty round the world, are absolute must-see destinations if you want to sink into the mysterious legend of Venice.www.turismovenezia.it
