Hospitality was excellent, you were made to feel at home. The food was amazing compliments to the chef. It's a must visit in Venice. I will totally recommend this site to anyone visiting Venice, rich history as well.

Great location between Venice & Padua, bus stop outside. We had great expectations and our welcome on first day could not be faulted. And then downhill! Don't expect a quiet stay, everything creaks, before any guests move. Breakfasts had to be the worst we have experienced; pre-cooked fried eggs from fridge + microwave, no fresh bread. No one in the... More

Dear Guest, Villa Ducale was built in 1854 in the heart of Riviera del Brenta few km far from Venice and Padua. As in all Villas and antiques Palaces, the floor creaks because it is elastic, but it is a peculiarity of the buildings of two centuries ago.
