  Villa Manin at Passariano UD

This scenic Venetian villa, built in the mid-1600s, was home to the last Venice Doge, Ludovico Manin. In 1797 Napoleon was also hosted here when signing the Tiepolo frescoesTreaty of Campoformido, which put an end to Venice's power passing it to the Austrian Empire. It is a grand, almost regal palace, which outdoes all the villas of the Veneto for extension and extravagance. The magnificent square, surrounded by a long colonnade, reminds you of St.Peter's square in Rome while the arches recall Palladio's architectural models.

Villa ManinOur tour includes a visit to Napoleon's chamber (which features a portrait by David), the chapel, the antique armory, the carriage museum and the map salon. We'll then walk through the beautiful park, full of rare botanical species, small lakes, hills, and valleys: just the perfect place for a picnic!
