Mogliano Veneto (Mogian /mo'ʤan/ in Venetian language) is a town and comune in the province of Treviso, Veneto, northern Italy, located halfway between Mestre (Venice) and Treviso.

Culture[edit]

Mogliano is well known for the Medieval festival, which takes place in September of every year, as well as for the Christmas market which takes place from 1–10 December of every year with market stalls being set up in Piazza Pio X by cottage industries from as far away as Perugia.

Transport[edit]

Mogliano is cut in two by a busy street, known as Terraglio, a historical road linking Treviso and Mestre/Venice. Mogliano Veneto railway station is on the busy Venice–Udine railway and, like Mestre, serves as a dormitory town for people working in the surrounding industrial areas. Train services operate to Venice, Treviso, Udine and Trieste.
