Venice Secret Gardens come as a surprise, since the impression you get while walking through the narrow alleys is that Venice is a densely built-up urban centre. While exploring some of the hidden gardens of Venice you’ll learn the history that brought the Venetians to create beautiful gardens in such a peculiar environment.
You will visit the garden of an old Renaissance aristocratic palace, located along the Northern Lagoon, in one of the peaceful corners of Venice, away from the touristy areas. The garden was once the enclosed retreat of “excellent spirits”, like the famous painter Titian and the author, poet and satirist Pietro Aretino.
Venice Secret Gardens tour will take you then to see a suggestive Romantic garden created by a man of great culture, and expert of botanical sciences, recently restored according to the original project. After the visit to the garden you will enjoy a coffee or a drink with fresh pastry.
The third garden included in the tour is today a peaceful park, located in the most western part of Venice, where many old stones remain hidden from the view by a number of different tree species.
