7 Reviews

The Villa dei Vescovi was built in the 16th century, perched on a hill about 11 miles from Padua, as a summer retreat for the bishops of Padua. Today, the stately villa and the grounds are open to the public.

The rooms feature beautiful frescoes and high ceilings with wooden beams, both of which extend out onto the porticos that overlook the gardens, and there is historical furniture throughout. The grounds surrounding the villa include a vineyard and an orchard of fruit trees.

The second story of the villa contain the rooms in which the bishops lived, from the time it was built through the 20th century. The property was renovated and restored from 2007 through 2011. Today, two of the apartments on the second floor are available to rent, with two bedrooms each, plus private kitchens and bathrooms.

Tour to Villa dei Vescovi and the Valsanzibio Garden from Padua

Tour to Villa dei Vescovi and the Valsanzibio Garden from Padua

star-4
1
We will start first at a time from the Monumental Garden of Valsanzibio, an immense symbolic garden of the seventeenth century, called a few years ago the Most Beautiful Park in Italy, completely surrounded by the verdant landscape and the soft curves of the Euganean Hills. Here water features, tree-lined avenues, fountains, the intricate labyrinth and the statues come together harmoniously in an allegorical path of "Salvification" along which the visitor, traveling through various stages, from the Portal of Diana to the Statue of Winged Time up to the fountain of the Dolphins, is guided in the symbolic liberation from sins. Later we will move to visit Villa dei Vescovi in Luvigliano di Torreglia: a precious gem set in the Euganean Hills, an ancient holiday residence of the Paduan high prelates that dates back to the first half of the sixteenth century.
