Feltre

In this chapter we treat one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities of Valbelluna, do not miss the fascinating Feltre.

Feltre, situated between the Piave river and the Dolomites, is a pretty walled city divided into two parts: the old part clinging to the hill with the walls and the modern part that, despite the numerous buildings of the 1500s, has become the center of the commercial and industrial life of the city. Do not miss the "Palio di Feltre", of fifteenth-century origin, which is an event that takes place every year on the first weekend of August, with the aim of remembering the entrance of the city of Feltre in the Republic of Venice.

During the event, the four districts of the city, namely Castello, Duomo, Port'Oria and Santo Stefano, disputed each other the possession of the fifteen gold ducats sewn on a drape of author, which will remain to the winner as symbol of victory. All this is divided into four characteristic races: relay race, archery, tug of war and equestrian race or race of the runners. The festivities begin on Friday evening with dinners in the neighborhoods that gather hundreds of diners in the streets and squares.
