Join us on a relaxing drive along the banks of the river Brenta that links Padua to Venice, where the Venetian nobility built their summer villas - some decorated with splendid frescoes and designed by famous architects such as Palladio, Scamozzi and Longhena. We pass through the picturesque towns of Mira and Dolo, heading towards the highlight of the tour, the Villa Pisani at Stra, a symbol of excellence and of the greatness of the 18th century, where it takes a couple of hours to enjoy a stroll in the grounds with its labyrinth and stables, and the villa itself with frescoes by G.B. Tiepolo. The villa was built by the Pisani family of Venice between 1720 and 1756 to celebrate the election of Alvise Pisani as Doge, and had renowned guests: King Gustavus of Sweden, Napoleon, Counts of Northern Europe, Savoia family and many more.
