It has a prosperous economy and is an important producer of wine.[2] It encompasses an area of 750 square miles.[3]

The province of Treviso was established by the Celts but flourished under Romans before it was subjugated to Hun, Ostrogoth, and Lombard control.[4] During Roman rule, the province was called Tarvisium.[1] During the first World War the province was badly damaged by the Army of Austria.[5]

It is an annual event organised on the last Sunday of April. The race starts from the city and ends in Padua. On their way the runners pass through eight different towns.[6] Furniture, sport systems, textile, wine, shoes and machinery are some of the major commercial products in the province.[7]

Montello Peak is located in the province. The plateau of Cansiglio was given the name-Woods of the Most Serene Republic because it supplied wood for making many Venetian ships.[8]
