If you like to discover Italy moving on water there is a route that will take you to the secret landscapes of the Venice region..
In the region of Venice, facing the Riviera of the Brenta there are the renown Venetian Villas, beautiful 15th-18th century palaces built as summer residences by the local aristocracy.
In past artists, architects, poets have come to appreciate the Villas and were charmed by them. Famous aristocratic houses such as Chiswick House and mansions like the White House were inspired by the Venetian Villas.
Spring is the ideal season to visit these romantic palaces, rest in their blooming parks, loose yourself in the labyrinths and be amazed by the frescoed rooms.
Some of the Venetian Villas face the Brenta river between Venice and Padua.
By navigating on the waters it is possible to reach the palaces on the typical boat Burchiello, spending a memorable day cruising in the Venice region.
