Villa Vendramin at Noventa Padovana (PD)


Noventa Padovana, altitude 10 m/33 feet above sea level.  Train station at Ponte di Brenta 2 km/1.2 miles to the north or alternatively at Padova 5 km/3 miles to the west.

The villa is located near the bike route of the Piovego Canal, which is a section of the Riviera del Brenta bike route, and still within the urban area of Padova.

This villa was constructed during the middle of the sixteenth century and then radically altered during the eighteenth century by the Vendramin family which gave it as a dowry to Elisabetta Vendramin on the occasion of her wedding to Pietro Cappello.
