Already inside the villa it will be possible to admire and learn about history and works of important authors: the villa itself is an original structure of the sixteenth century, protected by the Superintendency of Italian Artistic-Cultural Heritage, where inside hides a ceiling frescoed by an anonymous disciple of the school of the great Giambattista Tiepolo, but not only, other modern- contemporary authors have decided to exhibit personal works in the spaces of Villa Cornaro. Little known, but actually very interesting, is the Napoleon Museum which is only 3 km from the Tourist Suites.
