"Cruising the Brenta to Stra" Top 5 Page for this destination Stra by sandysmith

Stra Travel Guide: 64 reviews and 171 photos

Typical of the scenery on the Brenta Canal as we slowly sailed towards Stra and the amazing Villa Pisani.

In my element at the front of the boat, capturing all those reflections :-)
Such an idlylic day trip - far removed from the heat and bustle of Venice

    Ah Sandy, same here, I was an idiot not to read your page before I went to V. Brenta villas look amazing, and I will do the tour next time :-) I adore these worn out sculptures in the parks, similar to the ones on Torcello :-)

    an excellent page, Sandy ! I visited many of these villas by car, BUT with such a tour-ship it is certainly a lot better ! Maybe next year !!

    Lovely reflections of the villa but what a pity you couldn't take pics inside

    Wonderful reflection! Ciao! 27 sept 2005. A cruise on Brenta River is an experience worth to do I think. Ciao!
