Just outside Treviso and only a few kilometres from the Venetian lagoon is a 17th-century Venetian Villa with a rich history. Villa Tiepolo Passi is a magnificent example of a post-Palladio Venetian Villa, created by the genius of Vincenzo Scamozzi and the popularity in Venice of the early Baroque style.
From every angle, this Villa is a wonder of art and nature: from the magnificent frontage to the large grounds, decorated with statues by Giuseppe Bernardi and his grandson Giovanni Ferrari, who also had a young Antonio Canova working in their studio. Today the Villa still features rooms with lavishly decorated ceilings and frescoes by Bolognese dating from the 17th century, as well as a private chapel decorated by Giambattista Canal, a painter from the famous Tiepolo school of painters.
In the 1800s Villa Tiepolo Passi passed into the hands of the Counts Passi de Preposulo, an ancient noble family originally from Bergamo which still runs this house with the same passion and care. Guided and educational tours and accommodation are available and it is also a venue for events. If you are looking to stay in an historic Venetian Villa, why not book one of the rooms at Villa Tiepolo Passi in the Foresteria, the old guest quarters where you can still feel like you are a 19th century visitor in search of elegant, refined hospitality.
