This is one of Palladio's best known villas. Site, architecture and decorations fuse in a splendid way. The Veronese frescoes are awe inspiring and the Nymphaeum is quite unique. A minor point is that you are not allowed to take photographs even after paying a...More

I would put it like that - while visiting Veneto region the visitation of one of the villas is enough, because as we concluded all of them are decorated in similar style. So I would suggest to visit Villa Rotonda near Vicenza which is the...More

The Villa Barbaro is one of Palladio's more famous villas from the latter half of the 1500s. Palladio lived his adult life in Vicenza where you can see many of his designs but he also did churches and villas away from Vicenza. This is a...More

The villa is magnificent; I wanted to add this review because I think the website and reviews do not pay justice to the restaurant, which has delightful wines and truly special local plates. I would highly recommend eating lunch here.

If you've read Sally Gable's "Palladian Days" and want to see a good example of a Palladian villa, but can't make it to Villa Cornaro on the days it is open, this is a good example of a Palladian Villa. The docents are knowledgeable and...More

Great and picturesque location among natural perks and vineyards. Exceptional frescos by Veronese. All this in the still inhabited historic villa.
