Palladian Villas and Vicenza

The Venetian Villas: extraordinary mansions representing a particular architectural style, which spread over during the historical period known as the Most Serene Republic of Venice (Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia). During those years, many country houses were transformed into real villas, where gentlemen from Venice used to retire to spend their holidays, hosting their friends or prominent figures related to the world of culture, art and music. The villa became, therefore, a real centre of power and a mark of social distinction for the rich Venetian bourgeoisie.  With this tour you’ll discover those beautiful places.
