  • Engaging guide, very prepared-great connoisseur English-and it showed a genuine love for the villa and its experienced historical and cultural value. A heritage that should be valued. Especially for the great Park at the back. Historic lift to be restored for people with disabilities. All very nice and well worth the admission money.

  • ... so you call this villa and indeed makes the idea since it began as a place of recreation of the Contarini family. Beautiful villa can be visited only through guided tour (we went around with Arianna, congratulations) and is an experience that is worth. Besides the villa, very well preserved and innovative for its time when it was built (especially the music room) there is a huge park with tree-lined streets, a pond, a botanical ... Not to be missed!

  • Guided tour is included in the ticket (so much). Too bad that even here it is forbidden to take pictures. There is a bookshop (and luckily though little provided). Very crowded.

  • Wonderful villa! I've been there and there was also a tour guide that was explaining the history of Contarini's family, and every detail of this massive villa. Worth to try!
  • Worthwhile but tours only inl italian
  • Nice to visit if you are in the area.
  • Villa Peasants is a late 1500 with the core probably designed by Andrea Palladio. The context of the Interior is beautiful and the rooms preserve fine paintings that deserve to be seen. The sprawling Park also contains a lake surrounded by many species of shrubs. The lawn is suitable for families with children. The day of the visit, there was also, in the square in front, the antiques market, one of the most important in Italy. Well worth a visit.

  • Beautiful Palladian villa in the province of Padua (Piazzola sul Brenta). Great for a visit to be inside the villa is the immense Park around. Reservations are recommended in the days of greatest attendance (guided tours of the Interior of the mansion last an hour for up to 40 people per hour). Competent guides. The Park is accessible without reservation. Great for a walk outdoors or for a picnic in designated areas.
