The unique charm of the lagoon

Venice is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is visited every year by millions of people who walk along the alleys on the more than 100 islands that make up the historic centre, connected by 400 bridges. Indeed, the main communication channels are the canals, and everything we are used to on the mainland floats here. The logic which we’re accustomed to applying in our day to day lives, is transformed by a unique spell here in Venice.

You can enjoy its beauty, travelling either by water by getting a boat taxi or ferryboat, or on foot, which will give you the chance to stop for a photo or two (there’ll be many, we assure you), pay a visit to one of the many characteristic shops, or be awestruck by its many architectural wonders. However you explore it, it will undoubtedly become a truly special time to remember.

There are too many beauties to enjoy to list them all, so we’ll just set you on your way with a few that are truly unmissable: St Mark’s Basilica, with its famous square and the grand bell tower (rebuilt in the early 1900s after collapsing), the adjacent Palazzo Ducale, the nearby Bridge of Sighs (so called because it was the last sight granted to prisoners on their journey to the Venetian prisons), the Basilica dei Frari, the Rialto Bridge and the Gallerie dell’Accademia.

But that’s not all: in Venice there are also a number of spectacular events that you’ll want to attend if you can, including the Biennale, the Film Festival, the Carnival, the historical regatta and so much more, enchanting you at any time of year with its constantly thriving cultural scene.
Hotel Villa Barbarich offers two free daily rides to the city of Venice upon reservation.

The city of a thousand faces

Visiting Padua is like time travelling, every corner tells of something fascinating and unique.
Each turn you take reveals part of this city’s personality: see this city’s spirituality, with the Scrovegni Chapel, the Basilica of St. Anthony and the Cathedral, or take a trip to its academic world full of geniuses and enlightenment with the ancient university building of Palazzo del Bo and the avenues of the Botanical Gardens; then, why not go and enjoy the busyness and bustling life that you can find in the markets of Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza della Frutta, or enjoy one of the many thriving restaurant or café scenes, including the ever so famous Caffè Pedrocchi.

Villa Pisani

The jewel of the Brenta

One of the most famous Venetian Villas, Villa Pisani is located in the town of Stra, just 30 kilometres away from Villa Barbarich. Also called ‘Nazionale’, Villa Pisani houses a national museum of art and furnishings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. With 168 rooms spread over 15,000 square meters, Villa Pisani is an architecture masterpiece that should not be missed when visiting this beautiful area.
Villa Pisani is located on the Riviera del Brenta where, since the sixteenth century, the noble Venetian families settled here with some of the most prestigious private homes ever built, where they would host some incredibly lavish parties in the summer. Fast forward to the 21st century, and the Riviera is still a highly regarded place that hosts a number of businesses producing some of the highest-quality custom-made shoes that are then exported all over the world.
