Overview

Take in the historic beauty of the Veneto region during this 6-hour excursion from Padua. See imposing Medieval city walls, regal Palladian villas, and ancient Roman roads. Visit a cheese factory to learn how 'Grana Padano' cheese is made.
  • 6-hour tour of Veneto countryside, including Palladian villas and cheese factory
  • See three spectacular villas designed by Palladio
  • Visit a 'Grana Padano' cheese factory
  • Explore the town of Cittadella with its historic city walls
Start by getting picked up at your Padua hotel. Sit back and enjoy the scenery as you head into the surrounding countryside toward the town of Piazzola sul Brenta.

Arrive at the beautiful Villa Contarini, one of many buildings in the Veneto designed by the great Italian architect, Andrea Palladio. This particular Palladian villa is a fine example of the master's work.

Travel next to a 'caseificio,' or cheese factory, to learn about 'Grana Padano' cheese. Hear about how this delicious cheese is made and then aged to perfection – you can even buy some to take home.

Next, visit the town of Cittadella, where the historic city walls make an excellent walking path. Take a break for lunch (own expense) in Cittadella before heading to Graticolato Romano to see two more Palladian villas.

Return to Padua, traveling along the Brenta River.
