Villa Pisani National Museum, Stra

Specialty Museum · Museum
Lying along the Riviera del Brenta just a short distance from Venice is Villa Pisani National Museum, a group of late Baroque villas. Commissioned by the patrician Pisani family of Venice, the main villa was built in the early 18th century primarily as a demonstration of the family's power. This 144-room palace once welcomed kings, queens, and emperors, but today serves as a national museum containing 18th- and 19th-century works of art and furniture. The masterpiece to be found here is Giovanni Tiepolo's massive frescoed ceiling, "Glory of the Pisani Family," which can be found in the ballroom. The estate's large garden, which has an elaborate maze as its centerpiece, is also open to the public.

  • One of our favorite stops in Italy! We were practically the only people walking through the palace, which was such a refreshing way to experience a beautiful place in over-touristed Venice. The gardens are lovely and we had a great time in the labyrinth!
  • Worth every euro of the entry fee. Great inside and out. Best maze I have ever encountered. The inside tour ended with the ballroom. Incredible. Location on the Stra river was magical.
