About this tour...
Starting time: 9h00
This tour begin at the Cruise Terminal where we start our journey direction the Province of Treviso traveling on board of a very comfortable private minivan.
In the Veneto Region we still have something like 3000 villas spread all over our territory, some are very precious masterpieces of art, other very simple elegant farms, the two selected for you are Villa Emo in the small village of Fanzolo and villa Barbaro in Maser, two of the best Palladian residences, built for two Venetian noble families in the XVI century. Both villas are original project by Andrea Palladio and included in the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1996.
We well reach first villa Emo (1h drive), in the middle of flat countryside, a simple building in perfect harmony with the landscape, but with luxury interior frescoes decoration, still a marvelous house telling about agricultural life and agricultural production, cornerstones in the XVI century Venetian economy.
20 minutes away we will get to villa Barbaro, built on a gentle slope dominating the entire property. Here together in a unique combination you will admire the Palladian genius with the most famous frescoes by Paolo Veronese.
