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]

The province has a total population of about 900,000 As of 2016. There are 95 municipalities in the province.[1] The Marathon of Saint Anthony is a popular happening in the province's city Vedelago. 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]
