Are you looking for a day trip for you or your family?This is the perfect villa venete for you! Villa Tiepolo Passi is a Seventeenth-century Veneto villa and today is still the home of the noble Conti Passi de Preposulo family. This historic villa passi in treviso is very popular for cultural tourism and as a location for exclusive events. It offers guests the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of bygone days, and to savor the authentic flavors of the family’s traditional recipes. Wander through frescoed salons, see works of art and a centuries-old garden park that shows the graciousness and conviviality of Villa living.
Villa Tiepolo Passi was built by Almorò Tiepolo , procurator of San Marco and senator of the Venetian Republic , in the early seventeenth century. It rose like the other Venetian villas as an economic reference point for the agricultural activities of the surrounding area
Subsequently the villa passed to the Venetian family of the Valiers and in the mid-nineteenth century it became property of the Counts Passi de Preposulo by inheritance: bound by the Superintendence for cultural heritage and open to visitors, it is still inhabited by the owners. Since 2010 it has been the seat of the Ville Venete Association.
