The Venetian Villas and the Brenta Riviera
Visit the paradise of the Venetian Noble Families!
The Brenta Riviera, a well-known waterway between Padua and Venice, is a panoramic area interesting from a historical, natural, artistical and cultural point of view. It is a natural extension of Canal Grande and is punctuated, all along the banks of the Naviglio (the artificial canal which crosses it), by picturesque venetian villages and surrounded by an agricultural landscape. The Brenta Riviera has fascinated many important personalities through all times: Casanova, Galileo Galilei, Byron, Montesquieu, and D’Annunzio visited it, Canaletto, Cimaroli and Tiepolo painted it, and it was praised in Goldoni’s and Goethe’s masterpieces. The French and Russian royal families, the Hapsburg and the Savoys and even Napoleone stayed here and the venetian nobility chose it as scenery for their Venetian Villas. They built here magnificent residences, enclosed by monumental gardens, frescoed, and designed by the most important artists of that epoch such as Palladio, Scamozzi, Tiziano and Tintoretto.
