• Learn about the life of Andrea Palladio and enter the famous and lesser-known villas in and around Vicenza and Padua including Villa Rotonda and Villa Godi.
• Gain private access in the company of architectural historian and Palladio expert Charles Hind.
• Cruise along the Brenta Canal into Venice and enjoy visits that focus on Palladio’s religious architecture.
