On your way to the Palazzo La Rotonda you can visit this other Villa (dei nani, meaning "dwarfs" as there are a lot of dwarf sculptures on the outer walls). The paintings inside the Villa sometimes have a sketchy quality, which i didn't like that much. Like La Rotonda, it's form over functionality.

Dear guest, thanks for your feedback. I am glad you got the chance to see Villa Valmarana ai Nani, considered one of the highest points reached by 18th century painter in whole Europe.

28 euros for a family of 4, it is quite small and didn't take long to view everything. The car park doesn't have many spaces, can be full at peak times.

We walked up to the Basilica Monte Berico and then downhill to this Villa. It"s private, not part of the city card scheme and is not classed as a museum, so almost no reductions on entry fee. The frescoes are amazing.

It is not so huge as you can expected but it is really interesting. There are lots of beautiful frescos, the entrance wall with the "Nani" statues is wonderful. I suggest a visit.

On a beautiful April morning, after the great excitement caused by our visit to the nearby Villa "La Rotonda", we visited Villa Valmarana. If the Rotonda hit us in the first place for the architecture, here is painting that mostly fascinated us. I had visited Vicenza in depth many years ago, but I had not reached the surroundings. So I... More

This is an inviting spot and short stony uphill walk from the nearby Villa Rotunda. There is good signage and what awaits you is a beautiful and warm home filled with Tiepolo frescoes as they are meant to be seen in a villa and not in a museum. The guest house is charming as well with the Chinese Room a... More
