The village of Dolo and its inhabitants
In the province of Venice there is a small village, Dolo, which doesn’t have a great reputation... The dialect expression ‘Ma te vien dal Dòeo?’ (Are you from Dolo or what?) is in fact used when you are talking to a person who is not considered particularly bright!
Dolo is actually a very picturesque village, inhabited by smart people!
Located halfway between Padua and Venice – and for this reason a stopping stage of the coach to the embarkation place of the Serenissima - Dolo was for a long time the heart of the economy and craftsmanship of Riviera del Brenta. Here were mills, post offices, locks and the only 'squero' where boats were built.
It boasts a historic centre full of picturesque and beautiful views and offers its guests numerous events such as the Madonnari Festival, the Ville Festival, the Storti Carnival, and much more. And it even boasts several famous fish restaurants!
If, instead, you are interested in the splendid Venetian villas along the Riviera del Brenta, take a look at our fascinating proposals... Some of the villas are just a short distance from Dolo!
