Villa Pisani National Museum, Stra
(3.7/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • If you are on the boat, you should not miss the visit of Villa Pisani. Only the façade facing the water is already enormous impression. The National Museum is a beautiful insight into the Veneto and Venice. In the possession of the family, Pisani, who was also a Doge was always a meeting place of rulers, from Napoleon to Musolini, who took intervention in the life of the population. Equipped with relatively many originals you can make up a picture of the living conditions of the upper class. Over one hundred rooms and rooms are arranged around the Central ceremonial area with the impressive frescos of Tiepolo. Equipped with furniture from the time, wonderful frescoes, paintings and silk, which partly covered the ravages of time to the victims, though renovations are observed. This giant residence is surrounded by a vast landscaped park with elegant water basin, which extends to the opposite former stables.

  • Passing on the Brenta riviera, chose this representing the villas to visit. Admission, including the visit of the Park and any exhibit costs 10 €. Attention to the visiting hours, which change with the seasons, and in autumn are further reduced. I was lucky that I can still get into the maze, and found it to be really intriguing. The villa contains a substantial number of rooms to visit, and the furnishings have been restored or recovered or very carefully, in the respect of history. It takes about 2 hours to visit quickly and villa Park, giving way to the labyrinth (you know when you enter but not when you leave!). It is now an ongoing exhibition on the photography of the early ' 900 in 3D, interesting to look at, and included in the ticket price.

  • After visiting the Malcontenta wasn't expecting a building so impressive, that has nothing to envy to a Palace. Beautiful and well preserved the villa, both the exterior and the Interior. Wonderful the huge garden, but it would take a better maintenance. Do however the maximum rating because in my opinion this is a place not to be missed. Hopefully the best maintenance and reopened the maze.

  • 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
