The Villa dei Vescovi was built in the 16th century, perched on a hill about 11 miles from Padua, as a summer retreat for the bishops of Padua. Today, the stately villa and the grounds are open to the public.
The rooms feature beautiful frescoes and high ceilings with wooden beams, both of which extend out onto the porticos that overlook the gardens, and there is historical furniture throughout. The grounds surrounding the villa include a vineyard and an orchard of fruit trees.
The second story of the villa contain the rooms in which the bishops lived, from the time it was built through the 20th century. The property was renovated and restored from 2007 through 2011. Today, two of the apartments on the second floor are available to rent, with two bedrooms each, plus private kitchens and bathrooms.
Guided tours are available for an additional €2 per person above the admission price. A photographer’s ticket, allowing visitors to take pictures in the villa, is another €3.
