“Knowing Palladio, the Basilica, the Loggia del Capitanio and the others, through studies
books is imperfect knowledge. It is needed to look at it in Vicenza.”

—  Andrea Palladio

A two day tour in Veneto with private guide to discover the Palladian Villas, the original Valle dei Mulini of 1100. You will also visit the historic Bisazza Foundation of Montecchio Maggiore, a new cultural space dedicated to design and contemporary architecture. Wine tasting in the area and lunches in traditional local restaurants.


Palladian Villas and Bisazza Foundation
Local delicacies and historical residences

You will visit Villa Godi Malinverni in Lugo, at the foot of the pre-Alps, and then move to Thiene to visit the Villa Castello Colleoni.
Lunch at the Molin Vecio restaurant in Caldogno to taste the local culinary tradition. In Montecchio Maggiore, in the province of Vicenza, you will discover Villa Cordellina and Villa Zileri Motterle.

Among villas, mills and tastings
The flavors of the Vicenza villages

The tour will continue with a visit to Villa Pisani Ferri (the Rocca Pisana) and Villa Pisani Bonetti (by Palladio) in Bagnolo. These are also two villas of great importance, but a little off of the beaten track, which allows you to visit them in peace.
For lunch we propose the Bau Sète tavern in Brendola, in a small village on a hill in a panoramic position or, alternatively, the most refined restaurant within the Villa Pisani of Bagnolo, Barchessa of villa Pisani.
In the afternoon, move towards the city of Vicenza to visit Villa La Rotonda and then proceed  with a little walk in the valle dei Mulini of Mossano, a small settlement of ancient water mills dating back to 1100 which are a postcard image from another time. You will conclude the tour with wine tastings in some local wineries.

Overnight stay in a historic residence
Charm and luxury

You’ll spend the night in a sixteenth-century residence, where you’ll experience the comfort of a luxury accommodation and the special atmosphere of a place immersed in a large english style park a few kilometers from the most beautiful places in the Veneto region.
