AN INTERPRETATION OF THE RENAISSANCE

From Saturday, April 7 to Sunday, April 8

Cost: 280€

Considered one of the most romantic cities of the world, Venice is made up of more than 110 small islands connected by a web of canals and bridges. The city appears to be floating in the Venetian lagoon, calm and serene yet oddly threatened by the nearby Adriatic Sea. Influenced by both Eastern and Western cultures, this once bustling port city has much to offer for visitors from all walks of life.

Venetian Villas cover an area that includes Treviso, Vicenza, Verona, Padua, and their surroundings. Palladio is the architect that adorned these areas with villas structured with clear, clean lines that represent an interpretation of the Renaissance in Northern Italy. “La Malcontenta,” Villa Barbaro, and “La Rotonda” express the clarity of lines in architecture, following the Renaissance principles that shed a new light on artists.
