Just booked this trip. Flights are little on the expensive side for this trip.
Flying out with Aer Lingus (AM) on Friday 1st April to Venice, Back on Sunday afternoon with Ryanair from Treviso.
Staying at the Continental Hotel (Feel a little like John Wick :P :P ), was recommended by a few experienced travellers to Treviso so I bowed to their knowledge.
Pretty Central hotel in Treviso.

Any ideas on a watering hole?

The Celtic Pub which is 1 minute walk from the Continental is the usual go to pub for away fans. Very good selection of beers (Guinness, Paulaner, Belgian stuff etc) and of course Prosecco as Benetton is in peak Prosecco producing country.

I booked the Continental for two nights though I am far from committed at this point ...

The flights back on Sunday are down to a fiver now as well, if anyone else is planning a last minute trip. I would have got one of those if it had been that price a few hours ago. But it'll be a cold day in hell before I give Ryanair two fivers ...

My son and I will be in Treviso for this match.
What's the story with tickets for away fans?
Can't see any option to buy them on the Benetton website benettonrugby.it/united-rugby-championship-2021-2022/

When I click that link I get a big banner trying to flog me tickets.

It takes me to here: sport.ticketone.it/event/it/47996/906007...d-rugby-championship

The Ticketone site has a graphic that shows the "Visitors" section. I bought tickets in Tribuna Ovest (West Stand), Verde A.
