Villa Pisani National Museum, Stra
(3.7/5 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.

  • It's not a villa but a wish for Royal Palace, more than 160 rooms! Today a Dim image of luxury past, lacks charm but despite looting and restores. The garden is large. Commendable reconstitution of the maze and orangerie with numerous varieties of citrus. Undersized staff is kind, the bookshop is stocked, the toilets are clean misses a cafeteria or a convenience store, the complex is immense and without heating and I paused again to warm up with a cup of coffee

  • I visited several times this villa both interior and exterior, I recommend it for those who like to walk the Park is truly unique and well cared for, interior rooms there is to follow a path that tells the stories of each room. The Council in every season deserve to be visited.

  • We're definitely out of season to enjoy what used to be the biggest, the most sumptuous summer residence of the Serenissima. In fact, nothing is done to prove otherwise. The Park which at the time was the boast greater, much to be represented in a series of prints published in Paris, has covered avenues from foliage and branches, the sidewalk fronting the villa along the rear façade is all disjointed. You have a general impression of shabby neglect. But the visit inside doesn't give a different feel with explanations on card stock ultraconsunti and crumpled and a poor overhead lighting we pass on a food service distributor poorly cleaned and confined in the back shop of the ticket office. Luckily there is a Tiepolo to console you with the magnificence of his fresco in the beautiful ballroom that alone is worth the visit. I mean some treasures or are held properly. or they open only when you are able to make them presentable.

  • 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
