A special event is awaiting you at Villa Tiepolo Passi Carbonera in Italy: guide and lunch buffet combined in a single enthralling half day!

After the guided tour of this magnificent example of post-Palladian Venetian Villa, built according to the style of a great representative of the 1500s, Vincenzo Scamozzi, you will enjoy a sumptuous lunch buffet prepared with locally-grown produce, homemade especially to delight the guests of the villa!

The guide will reveal to you the yesteryear atmosphere of Villa Tiepolo Passi from the very start of the visit: walking through the elegant inner halls finely decorated by artists of the seventeenth century and afterwards in the elegant gardens of the villa, you will experience the authentic charm of this noble manor house.

Your experience at Villa Tiepolo Passi in Treviso, Italy, with tour and brunch will start from the main part of the building, the manor house, built in Venetian baroque style: here you will be told the story of the powerful Tiepolo family, one of the founding families of the Venetian Republic, who built the villa between the 16th and 17th centuries.

The visit, starting from the ground floor, winds along the rooms and halls embellished with Sansovino-style ceilings and stuccos where you can admire a unique picture gallery by Frigimelica; it will then continue in the ballroom on the main floor, richly frescoed by Antonio Cerva Bolognese with mythological allegories set against fake architectures decorated with paintings in line with the seventeenth-century fashion.

The guided tour and lunch at Villa Tiepolo Passi in Treviso will continue to the outside into the grand Selese watched over by busts of the philosophers Democritus and Heraclitus that gaze at the sun rising and setting on 21st December, unmistakable symbolic references to the agricultural function of the villa. Afterwards, walking through a magnificent Italianate garden stretching out from the front of the building, you will admire a two kilometre long panoramic view. Leisurely walking among the neat square shapes of the box hedges you will admire the central stone fountain, fish pond and statues by Giovanni Torretto (Antonio Canova’s maestro).

The tour will continue in the romantic English-style park that stretches over two hectares on the left and right sides of the Italianate garden, adorned with caves and mounds and more than 40 different species of centuries-old trees. You will then reach the family chapel. This small private chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, was decorated in the last quarter of the eighteenth century by Giambattista Canal (Canaletto’s nephew) and was granted plenary indulgence by Pope Pius VI.

At the end of the guided visit in a few minutes you will then reach Tesa dei Tiepolo, a charming country house part of the villa’s farmstead where you will have the opportunity to appreciate the refined hospitality of the owners who have rediscovered, with the local produce, the secrets of the rich food of the villa and have combined them with influences from across Europe and the old-time recipe books of the area. The menu includes freshly baked bread and focaccia, rich servings of raw and cooked season vegetables, delicious sorbets (the one made with the lemons of the lemonade is a delight), a selection of cakes, Venetian mixed fry, organic comfitures and the delicious quince bon bon.

Blending tradition and innovation, here is a sophisticated combination of sweet and savoury flavours from the chef of Villa Tiepolo Passi (the menu changes every week according to product seasonality and availability).
