Villa Pisani National Museum, Stra

(3.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Lying along the Riviera del Brenta just a short distance from Venice is Villa Pisani National Museum, a group of late Baroque villas. Commissioned by the patrician Pisani family of Venice, the main villa was built in the early 18th century primarily as a demonstration of the family's power. This 144-room palace once welcomed kings, queens, and emperors, but today serves as a national museum containing 18th- and 19th-century works of art and furniture. The masterpiece to be found here is Giovanni Tiepolo's massive frescoed ceiling, "Glory of the Pisani Family," which can be found in the ballroom. The estate's large garden, which has an elaborate maze as its centerpiece, is also open to the public.

  • Very nice building in a beautiful place. The Palace is worth a visit and the garden are very nice for a nice stroll.

  • I took advantage of the first Sunday of the month to visit for free the Museum of villa Pisani even if the period is definitely not the best because when visiting the villa deserves to visit the park with the maze and the ideal is a warmer season to enjoy the walk. It is still enjoyable and interesting to visit the Museum and see how did the nobles of a time that was.

  • One of the best Villas on the Riviera del Brenta. Take at least one hour to enjoy a visit of the Villa with very nice paintings and furniture (a pice of Italian history); with good weather it will be also a great pleasure to visit the splendid gardens.
  • There are many villas in this area but this is my favorite. Very nice
  • Its history is interesting, but its glory days rest in the past. It's fallen in disrepair and is very slowly being renovated. There's not much to see and isn't very well curated. If you have nothing to do, go, but if you have a packed travel schedule, you can just research the subject on your own time and skip it.
  • Is beautiful. Inside and outside in the garden. Want to visit the first Sunday of the month. You do not pay and can see everything. Maybe a little neglected. Once I went and some areas including the maze were closed because there were no keepers! But how do you keep closed a maze that is the most beautiful and charming, with all the people working in there can you keep a maze
