Riviera del Brenta

Maybe you wont agree with me but there excist no more romantic place in Veneto than Riviera del Brenta is. Imagine 30 or 40 kilometres in between Venice and Padova, all along the bank of the river Brenta and that's it. Have you ever been there, NOT YET???, what you waiting for, Veneto isn't Venice only, its lot more.
Did you know it, nobles from Venice have chosen this riviera for their summer residences, the Roayl Italian family had their summer "bungalow" here, its called Villa Pisani and was designed by Andrea Palladio himself. There are so many beautiful villas here, I bet you wont close your mouth staring at them, wheter you passing by car, walking or taking imemorable boat tour.


Montagnana is fine example of medieval fortress town, situated on a state road which connecting Padova and Vicenza. The city walls and defending towers are almost perfectly preserved. The small city of Montagnana, situated inside the walls, is very pitoresque and worth of visiting.


Villafranca is off the beaten path place, almost a suburb of Verona. You must take state road to Mantova, passing nearby Verona's airport Catullo, and after 20 to 30 minutes there is nice surpise for you called Villafranca.
