The almost 5000 Venetian Villas are an architectural reality of absolute excellence in Italy and in the world. Their beauty and perfect formal balance have created models of architecture for centuries, such as the best-known example of the White House, inspired by the Villa Rotonda in Vicenza. The architect who designed them, effectively creating his own distinct style that has become famous and unmistakable, is Andrea Palladio, the absolute genius of 16th century architecture.

The Palladian Villas were the luxurious summer abodes of the noble and wealthy families of Venice who went on holiday to their summer residences/companies by boat (tracing the Brenta River) or by carriage. Some of these are National Museums, others UNESCO sites.

You will visit the four most beautiful and important Venetian Villas, representing the four Venetian provinces in which the Venetian Villas are located: Venice, Padua, Vicenza, and Treviso: all dream locations.

Venice, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also the cradle where the first film festival in the world was born: the Venice Lido. Created for the first time in 1932, from an idea of the then President of the Biennale, Giuseppe Volpi, the sculptor Antonio Maraini and Luciano de Feo, the exhibition immediately gained great popularity, so much so that it became an annual event as early as 1935.

Since then, it has always been the coveted destination of directors, stars, new talent, presentations of world premieres and career award winners of international cinema!
