The Royal Retreats of the Venetians

The Royal Retreats of the Venetians
The splendid villas on the hills around Venice and Asolo including the retreat of the Queen of Cyprus and of Eleonora Duse. A one day tour about 30 miles from Venice (appr. eight hours). Villa Maser, one of the most extraordinary farm-houses built by Palladio and frescoed by Veronese in the 16th century and Villa Fanzolo, another example of that "useful and beautiful" Palladio architecture still known all over the world.
