    On this tour you will visit the magnificent Villa Contarini and the Piazzola sul Brenta Antiques Market, one of the largest in the Veneto.


    This experience discovering Villa Contarini and the Piazzola sul Brenta Antiques Market will leave you speechless.

    The first stop is a visit to the sumptuous Villa Contarini. Built on the ruins of an ancient castle, the palace of Piazzola welcomed illustrious guests over time and was a symbol of the strength and power of the Republic of Venice. It is one of the most beautiful villas in the Veneto, with its exceptional length of 180 metres, its majestically decorated and furnished rooms and its boundless park.
    You can relive the comforts and refined entertainments of Venetian patricians who delighted in the Music Room, meticulously designed to reproduce a sound box.

    The villa is the scenic setting for the Piazzola sul Brenta antiques and gifts market, one of the largest in the Veneto region and one of the most spectacular in all of Europe.

    The market is held every last Sunday of the month, in the square of the villa, in the surrounding streets and inside the former Jutificio Camerini. Many exhibitors await you with many very interesting objects and unique collectors’ items.

    In addition to the stalls, the square is filled with people coming from all over Italy and Europe in search of an opportunity not to be missed. Just like the ‘market ritual’, here people discuss, haggle over the price, go in search of their bargain.

    Here you can find everything, antique and precious pieces, unique and ancient objects that belonged to dukes, marquises, nobility. It is a spectacle that is really worth visiting, so if you are fond of antiques, numismatics, vinyl records, period furniture, or if you simply want to browse a bit and spend a different day, do not miss the opportunity of a Sunday at the Antiques Market in Piazzola sul Brenta.
