Hosts: Michela and Sabrina
Address: Via Nazionale, 39/40 Mira-Venezia (Venice), Italy
Activities/Attractions: Most people speed through the Veneto on their way to Venice, yet its small cities are fascinating treasure troves of art and beacons of fine living, and only a few miles to the north the Alps begin, their foothills dotted with charming towns and lined with picturesque world-class vineyards. Because the average traveler aims only to see the city on the lagoon, the rest of the region is blessedly devoid of tourist crowds.
The heart of Veneto is a straight line due west from Venice taking in Padova and Verona before arriving at Lake Garda and Bardolino. The rich merchants of Venice knew this and even constructed the canal along the River Brenta to where their palatial villas and mansions were built.
The Brenta Riviera is set on the banks of the river that flows from Padua to the Venice Lagoon. Populated as early as the 5th Century A.D., its importance grew during the 15th century, when Venice extended its dominion to all of the hinterland. Nowadays, the Brenta Riviera boasts antique Villas, unique nature walks, relaxing river cruises and excellent seafood cuisine inspired by Venetian tradition.
Only a few kilometres from us, you can visit the famous Venetian Villas on the Brenta Riverside, easily reachable by bike or you may go on one of the many organized river- boat tours. Verona, Venice, the spectacular Po Delta, the Dolomite Mountains , the vast beaches of the Adriatic Riviera, the Thermal Baths and the Prosecco wine Road are only an hour away.
