A Little Off the Beaten Path, but Worth It

This is your chance to go inside a real Palladian home designed by the man himself; how can you pass that up? The rooms are beautifully frescoed. Everything is gorgeous. It... read more

One of Palladio's high achievements, this beautifully maintained villa remains a residence as well as a testament to the architect's genius. Truly a must see for any with a passion for art and architecture.

This was our fourth visit to this beautiful villa. We asked at the shop for a recommendation for a panini lunch in town. Just go upstairs, we were told -- we had seen a sign for “snacks,” but that meant cicchetti or something like that to us. Up we went and found a rather extensive menu. At the waitress’ suggestion,...

A feast of frescoes by Veronese adorn the walls and ceilings of this splendid house, designed by Palladio in the 16th century. The elegant interior is richly decorated with mythological scenes, landscapes and even a reputed self-portrait of the artist, as he gazes at visitors from a doorway at the end of a long corridor. The gardens are attractive and... More

First off: It is not easy to get here if you depend on public transport. Buses are not frequent...or at least they weren't when I visited in July, therefore public transport operated under the summer schedule. That said, visiting this villa is a must. It was designed by the famous architect Andrea Palladio, making this villa one of the several... More

Another impressive building by the famous architect Palladio, with an interior richely decorated with frescoes by Veronese. The harmony between landscape and building, so typical for the architect, is really remarkable. A must-see, like the Villa Emo.

Amazing, unbelievably gorgeous! I'm so glad I went there. It was so inspiring!! The frescoes inside are breathtaking. A UNESCO World Heritage site and a home still in use, 600 years after it was built.

You only really see a few rooms, beautifully frescoed and furnished, in this perfectly balanced Palladian house which is still lived in by the family. But what splendid rooms they are! You skid your way round the immense hall in huge slippers in order to protect the floor. In two rooms you are able to look through and see some... More

Villa Barbaro sits elegantly back and above the road - quiet and still as though no-one could ruffle it's feathers. We visited as a family with grandparents and children 6 and 8 - the children enjoyed wearing the soft slippers over their shoes, required for walking inside and learning the stories behind the frescos in each room. A family owns... More

We really enjoyed Villa Barbaro. Not only was the building amazing, but the staff was very nice. There is a gift shop and wine store on the property. We are so very glad we made this stop. We went to see the Rotonda and it was so disappointing, nothing like this experience..
