Lonely Planet review

From La Rotonda, a charming footpath leads about 500m to the elegantly neoclassical Villa Valmarana ‘ai Nani’, the interior of which shelters 1757 frescoes by Giambattista Tiepolo and his son Giandomenico. Giambattista painted the Palazzina wing with his signature mythological epics, while his son painted the Foresteria with rural, carnival and Chinese themes.

Nicknamed after the 17 statues of gnomes ('ai Nani') around the perimeter walls, this estate is a superb spot for the occasional summer concert; check dates online.
