Meet your driver in Venice's Piazzale Roma and enjoy the scenery during the drive along the Brenta River toward Padova. Some of the villas the great architect Palladio built for wealthy families stand along the river.
Explore the picturesque city of Padova, including the statue-lined Piazza delle Erbe and the exquisite Giotto frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel (not included; visits must be reserved in advance).
Travel next to the hill town of Asolo, which was once the court of Caterina Cornaro, to walk through its charming cobblestone streets. En route back to Venice, admire more of the Palladian villas built for noble families.
