Villa di Rovero, San Zenone degli Ezzelini (TV)


San Zenone degli Ezzelini, province of Treviso, altitude 120 m/394 feet above sea level; train station at Bassano del Grappa, 8 km/5 miles to the west.

This villa was built at the end of the sixteenth century on behalf of the nobleman Cristofaro di Rovero; the architect is unknown. Particularly delightful is its setting on a hillside amongst cypresses and a lemon grove; nearby was a castle of the Ezzelini family. The entrance gate is off the local highway [SS248] that connects Bassano del Grappa with Montebelluna.

The villa is not open to the public.
