The Villa Giustiniani: a Family Home for Over 400 Years

When you drive through the small agricultural villages of the Veneto, south of Venice, it all seems a little flat and uninteresting. However, this is an area rich in history and there are hidden gems to be discovered.

If you blink while you’re driving through the tiny village of Vanzo, near the Monselice exit of the A13 autostrada, you’ll miss a pair of tall, wrought iron gates at the beginning of an avenue of lime trees. At the other end of the avenue is one of the loveliest yet unknown villas of the Veneto, still lived in by the same family, unlike the many other villas which have become empty, faded museums.
