The “Brenta Riviera” is a beautiful area on the land, next to Venice, located on the banks of the old river Brenta that joins Padua to Venice. The “Riviera del Brenta” is a group of villages, green areas and wonderful venetian villas born , in particular, during the Golden Age of Venice (XVIIth ad XVIIIth century).  Rich in the events of this era and its people, the Brenta Riviera is still marked today by the flowering gardens of these noble residences, with villas open to the public, statue-decorated water features, and weeping willows lapping in the currents of the river. 

In 1996 24 venetian villas were inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

And to support this heritage you can experience the tradition of hospitality of local population, their culinary passion for fish, and dedication to crafts, particularly in the skilled art of footwear production.

We offer the following package:

- a two nights stay in a double room at a hotel 3*S with breakfast included 

- a private guided tour of the most famous among the venetian villas (2 hours in total)

- a dinner at a restaurant specialized in fish (2 courses; drinks not included)

It would be more comfortable if you have your own car. Otherwise during the day it is possible to move along the “Brenta Riviera” by public bus. For more info about private car or other services, please, write us. We are also happy to create tailor made experiences for you (both groups and individuals).
