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.

  • Was the autumn 2015 ... the best day of my life I spent here. Thank you again who that day we did visit the villa's Park Wilderness. at times it was raining ... but I've never seen anything more beautiful and heard perfumes so ... I loved the orangerie and the gazebo. I asked the person I love to marry me there. that day. I couldn't do it. Thanks Villa pisani for an indelible memory forever in my mind and in my heart. Thanks to Laura for letting us shoot a music video for a song that I love so I'll see my lovely Villa always, when I want.

  • This breathtaking Villa facing the Brenta river is probabibly the most beautiful we saw along the "Brenta Riviera" (Villa Foscari is wonderful too, although much smaller). We stopped here for a guided...  read more »
  • D'annunzio was right: bella is beautiful but it's decadence to be mistress, especially in the image it gives of itself to visitors. Huge, full of charm, forward despite all a feeling contradictory and you feel right away, unfortunately, that it is an asset that belongs to the State. It's really a shame that this is the constant in our country: have an asset so valuable and not being able to tap into not so much as to retain it. Empty rooms, unattended and untreated. But despite this there is the story, the real one: because from here we have gone all serious. Extraordinarily large and charming Maze: the Villa is worth a visit just for this. It is a unique experience.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful villa with huge gardens and maze and fountains. Worth a visit at least once. Ticket prices are priced with discounts available for residents in the riviera and for young people. On the first Sunday of every month you enter for free.

  • Wonderful villa which overlooks a large, beautiful park, with many species of trees, plants and flowers. Many statues in classical style, a large fountain in the main garden and a beautiful Hedge Maze with a central tower. Great for an afternoon picnic.
