During the Winter season, the city of Venice and its region of influence, the Veneto, are most beautiful and evocative as the mist from the Adriatic Sea moves across the “lagoon” and the marshes of this extraordinary geography. The architecture of Andrea Palladio, in the city and the territory, is enhanced by this muted, northern winter light and by the luminous clarity of the Italian Renaissance.

The artistic and cultural heritage of Venice and its territory, is evident along its canals and squares, in museums and churches and in the villa and the palazzo. It reveals itself as a dazzling culture which spans a thousand years,  still as dynamic and vibrant today.

In Palladio’s architecture, this extraordinary legacy is visible in the buildings themselves. The houses, palaces and churches Palladio built in the XVI Century, are works of lasting value and offer exceptional lessons in art, architecture and urbanism.

The visit includes the study of architects and artists recognized as part of the cultural sphere of the Renaissance in the north of Italy, influencing Palladio’s conception of art and architecture, such as the frescoes by Giotto in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padova, Palladio’s birth place, or the works of Alberti, Mantegna, and Giuglio Romano in Mantova.
