Overview

About the property

Spacious apartment for 4 in the heart of Riviera del Brenta waterfront the river

Residence Donatello is for me what a home should be: warm, friendly, comprehensive and able to make me live positive emotions and good feelings.

The chance to live and see the Brenta River and the Venetian countryside through the window fills me with joy every time and I understand how the Brenta Riviera became the resort of Venetian nobility from the past.

We are in the very heart of the Riviera del Brenta, just 20 minutes from Venice and 30 minutes from Padova, between the Venetian Villas of Palladio and places of Goldoni.

Residence Donatello is a large apartment for 4 people.

I equipped the house with books and magazines that will surely help you if you want to visit Venice, Padua, Treviso, Verona and Vicenza, all a few minutes from Mira cities.

On the way back from your excursions, Residenza Donatello welcomes you with its bright living room, the comfortable room and beautiful bathroom with glass shower. Air conditioning is available throughout the house.

20 mt. close to the house there is an excellent fish restaurant with specialties and a villa with meat dishes.

At about 100 meters from the residence, you can spend evenings with live music in Disco Pub Kalispera.

Very close to Casa Roberta you can also rent a bike to travel the beautiful routes to discover the Riviera del Brenta.

A few kilometers you will discover the beautiful castle of Noale, the Fortress of Monselice or the fisherman village of Chioggia.

Search the web news about the Historical Regatta of Venice, the Carnival of Venice, Venice Film Festival on Stra-Venice Marathon (which passes right in front of the house), the Biennale of art and culture, and the Guggenheim Museum nearly a thousand other initiatives that will stay on our own at hand.

About Roberta Celegato & Enrico Perazzolo

I'm Roberta and I managed 4 Holiday Homes near Venice from 7 years. I really had only one dream: to be able to offer you the best confort and honest price twice, when you are a couple or a family.

I really hope I have won this challenge!

Why Roberta Celegato & Enrico Perazzolo chose Metropolitan City of Venice

Palladio is in the centre of Mira, very cool village close to Venice, in the Venice countryside, where you can meet people like me or have lunch & glass of wine in peace and calm, looking at the ancient buildings and villas...

Wonderful!!

Bonne situation et beau logement

  • 4 of 5

Logement agréable et bien situé. Il n'y manque rien. Un refuge appréciable après une journée de visite. La voiture uniquement pour les courses ; bien le parking ! Le bus très pratique pour aller à Venise et à Padoue. Les informations des propriétaires, utiles et intéressantes. Très bon, le restaurant à proximité à pied.

....come a casa!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Io mia moglie e i nostri due bambini abbiamo passato dei giorni meravigliosi nel delizioso appartamento curato nei minimi dettagli e arredato con ottimo gusto da Roberta ed Enrico. Grazie alle loro preziose indicazioni, abbiamo potuto visitare i luoghi più suggestivi di Venezia. Per recarci in laguna abbiamo optato per il treno: Stazione a 3 km, tempi ridotti e costi contenuti. Super consigliato alle famiglie!!!!!

Grazie ancora per la vostra ospitalità!!!

Paolo e famiglia

Car: not necessary

Given its rich past, Venice is home to plenty of historic sites and museums. What there's a shortage of is quality nightlife. Instead, exert your energy touring the city's churches and riding along the canal because only a few low-key bars offer evening entertainment. But if you're a connoisseur of the Italian opera, you might enjoy a night out at the Teatro La Fenice.

If you can't decide how to start a busy day in Venice, experts and experienced travelers recommend hopping on a vaporetto and sightseeing from the waters of the Grand Canal. Recent visitors also recommend signing up for a tour with Context Travel Venice.

St. Mark's Basilica is a must-see. Originally built in the first century A.D., the church's entrance is flanked by replicas of bronze horse statues that were originally pillaged from Constantinople. Be sure to dress properly and respectfully to visit, as you won't be allowed to cross the bronze horses with bare shoulders or knees.

Another popular site is the Ca' d' Oro (or Golden House), of the Cannaregio sestiere (neighborhood). The palace's gold-lined interior once served as the residence of the famous ballet dancer Maria Taglioni. And if you're traveling with your significant other, you might want to pause for a kiss (at sunset while in a gondola) underneath the Bridge of Sighs. According to legend, it's supposed to ensure eternal love.

Museums

Venice is filled with museums that brilliantly display the city's rich artistic past. One of the most well-known is the Academy Gallery (Gallerie dell'Accademia) in Dorsoduro. The modern art housed in the nearby Peggy Guggenheim Collection is also quite popular, as is the Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace).

There is a museum pass available for some of Venice's best known museums. It does not include all of them. It is already worthwhile buying it if you intend to visit the two big museums at Saint Marc Square: The Doge's Palace and Correr Museum. A more expensive pass also including some famous churches and transportation is available at the tourist information."

From the Water

Gondolas may provide the most defining picture of Venice. Back in the day, these slender and shallow boats steered by a single, trained and respected gondolier were the main mode of transportation. Today, they are mainly for visitors and are priced that way. Nevertheless, a gondola ride down the Grand Canal is worth the splurge. The best -- but most expensive -- time to ride is dusk; however, it's also the prettiest and most calm time to see the sights. 

Although gondoliers cluster around San Marco, travel writers predict a better bargain if you take a gondola near San Polo or Rialto. Haggling is welcome, but be sure to agree on price and the length of the ride before getting in the boat.

A vaporetto (water bus) ride is a cheaper way to see the city from the water: The No. 1 line -- probably the most scenic and all-encompassing, as it goes from Piazzale Roma near the train station to San Marco and Lido.

Islands

After exploring the main city, you might enjoy a vaporetto ride to some of the surrounding islands. The cemetery island of San Michele is especially not to be missed. In the north, the island of Murano is famed for its glassware, and recent visitors say it's worth the trip to see the glassblowers in action. Nearby Burano is known for its lace-making; visit the Museo del Merletto, or Lace Museum, to see the group of Buranese women sewing traditional lace doilies and table linens.

South of Venice is Lido. Although its resorts are best described as overpriced and its beaches categorized as uninspiring, it's also quite busy in the warm summer months.

Shopping

The streets of Venice are lined with little stores selling a range of items from high-end designer goods to affordable souvenirs. If you want to get something Venetian to take home, be aware that the city is known for crafting various items such as Carnival masks, glassware and lace. The Venetian islands of Murano and Burano, in particular, are famous for their glassmakers and lace makers, respectively. However, with the rise in the tourism industry, the authenticity and origin of these pieces in stores are sometimes doubtful. Prices for the real stuff can be incredibly steep.
