How to Find the Best Hotels in Riviera del Brenta, Venice with Hotels.com

The Riviera del Brenta is one of the gems of Venice, and is worth a visit for tourists who want to travel off the beaten path. Running from Venice to Padua, the waterway called the Naviglio del Brenta is the setting for some of the most beautiful villas owned by Venetian aristocrats, who started building them in the 15th century. At that time, the big business of sea trade was starting to wane in Venice, forcing traders and merchants to move inland and diversify their holdings by purchasing agricultural land. Affluent families saw the value in living away from the Venetian crowds, and began to outdo each other, building massive and ornate country estates. Hotels in this area tend to book out well in advance. To research hotels in Riviera del Brenta, Venice, check out the listings on Hotels.com. You can see which rooms are available on your travel dates, while checking out the photos and reviews of all the accommodations on Hotels.com.

What's Riviera del Brenta Like?

The Riviera del Brenta isn't the exclusive domain of the very wealthy today. Small towns have grown up around the formerly stately villas, and many of the villas themselves have been the victims of time and neglect. However, there are still many reasons to tour the estates, not the least of which is the opportunity to see the frescoes, ballrooms and gardens that once were part of the daily life of Venice's wealthiest citizens. If you can only visit one villa, the Villa Pisani is a good choice. Napoleon slept here only one night, in an ornate bed made just for him with an adjoining sunken bath, before giving the entire palace away. It has 114 rooms, an orangery, and a maze.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Riviera del Brenta, Venice

The Riviera del Brenta area sees far fewer tourists than Venice proper, so English-speaking help in shops and restaurants may be more difficult to find. Young people are taught English in school, so you should be able to locate someone nearby who can help translate if you run into trouble. Most tours are offered in several languages, including English. The area offers bike tours to visit the countryside by land, which is a great way to discover the small dining establishments and bars that have a true local atmosphere. The locals will love hosting and feeding you and will appreciate your business. Make sure you get the exact room you want by booking it early on Hotels.com.
