A beautiful villa in what must have been a beautiful garden once. On a perfect spring day, nothing could be better than wandering around taking in the charme of the place. The Tiepolo frescoes are marvelous, so suited to the villa and the surroundings. A good way to get an idea of what life was like for the well-to-do some... More

I drove miles up mountains and down again and could not get entry to three Palladio villas (including La Rotunda) - bummer. But on the way I dropped in on the Villa Varmalena Ai Nani which was nearby La Rotunda. This was the Villa of the Dwarves (Ai Nani) - 17 of them on the wall around the villa. It... More

On your way to the Palazzo La Rotonda you can visit this other Villa (dei nani, meaning "dwarfs" as there are a lot of dwarf sculptures on the outer walls). The paintings inside the Villa sometimes have a sketchy quality, which i didn't like that much. Like La Rotonda, it's form over functionality.

Villa Valmarana ai Nani is often visited as an adjunct to the more famous Palladian La Rotonda villa, from which it is about a 10-minute walk up a stony lane. The villa seems to be known primarily for its paintings, though there are many fine works of art elsewhere in the Veneto – not least in churches – available for... More

28 euros for a family of 4, it is quite small and didn't take long to view everything. The car park doesn't have many spaces, can be full at peak times.

We walked up to the Basilica Monte Berico and then downhill to this Villa. It"s private, not part of the city card scheme and is not classed as a museum, so almost no reductions on entry fee. The frescoes are amazing.

It is not so huge as you can expected but it is really interesting. There are lots of beautiful frescos, the entrance wall with the "Nani" statues is wonderful. I suggest a visit.
