Package Itinerary

This travel package will allow you to discover the beautiful surroundings of Venice.  

The Riviera del Brenta is the urban and historical landscape, distributed along the "Naviglio del Brenta", the old bed of the Brenta Vecchia, the river Brenta. The area is characterized by the presence of many villas built between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century by the Venetian noble families, testifying to the power aristrocratica period.   At that time, the Riviera was achieved only by moving the boat, while the existing roads were built later. The ideal mainland extension to Venice, considered almost one of the quarters of the City on the Lagoon, became an elite holiday resort for the rich and noble families of Venice. 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.
