Villa Godi was the first villa designed by Palladio, in around 1537, and his first step in the creation of a new type of residential building for the countryside. The young architect was still deeply influenced by the local vernacular tradition.
A guided tour of Villa Godi focuses on both aspects of Palladio’s creation: tradition and innovation.
The amazing view of the surrounding hills, the historic garden and the original kitchen are the
highlights of the visit to Villa Godi, together with the perfectly preserved frescos.
