Depart with your private driver for a delightful day in the beautiful countryside of the Veneto region. During this excursion you will visit the medieval towns of Asolo and Marostica, stop by Villa Barbaro, and enjoy a Prosecco wine tasting in a local vineyard.
Your first stop will be Asolo, pearl of Veneto, perched on lush green hills. Nicknamed “The City of a Hundred Horizons”, Asolo is considered to be one of the loveliest towns in Italy. Along with its delightful gardens and summer villas, the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside that have earned it its nickname have inspired many poets, writers and artists over the centuries.
Nearby, at the foot of the Asolo Hills, is the stunning Villa Barbaro, also called Villa di Maser. It is one of Palladio’s most celebrated architectural works, its interior decorated with fine frescoes by the artist Paolo Veronese. Its gardens are also quite beautiful, particularly the Nymphaeum hidden away behind the villa.
Next is the town of Marostica, with its imposing castle and giant chess board that doubles as the town square. This is where, every evenly numbered year, the famous living game of chess is played. Each piece is a townsperson dressed in medieval garb, including knights on horseback.
Lastly, your driver will take you through the Prosecco Wine Road, where you will celebrate the end of your excursion in Veneto with a refreshing glass of Prosecco, enjoyed in the hospitality of a local vineyard.
You will be returned to Piazzale Roma in Venice at the end of your excursion.
