    An amazing collection of beautiful old villas. I'm glad to see that the 16th century water-mill is still in use and can be visited. I also like the atmosphere in such places, with the water rushing through and turning the old (mainly wooden?) machinery.

    Wunderbare Seite und Photos! Leider habe ich weder Stra noch Dolo besucht, aber ich möchte gern.

    There is soo much and nice to detect here - it must not always only be Venice!

    The more and more I read about Italy, the more eager I am to go see it in person. Great tips Michael! I can only imagine those villas erected along the canal started polluting the fresh water within no time! Humans are so destructive!

    I don't know how you keep finding all these amazing places! This is a very interesting area, those villas are simply classic! The arrangement of the Dolo church is quite unique too. An excellent page!

    Michael, your introductory collage is amazing. Villa Pisani and the Park do, indeed, look enticing. Brenta Canal and its history is interesting. Dolo villas, church, and watermill all look great. Excellent work.

    I like the combination of villas and other interesting sights -- I guess summer there would be warm for you Austrians ;)
