Villa Foscari is only open to the public on Saturday and Tuesday mornings from 9.00 to 12.00. We travelled from Padua on the 53 bus leaving at 8.25 and arriving at Malcontenta at 9.20. We nearly missed the bus as we waited at the wrong bus stop. Do not go to stand 11 as the express bus to Venice leaves from there at about the same time. The 53 bus goes from beyond the numbered bays, it is a local yellow bus. You can return from Malcontenta at 11.44 or 12.44. We had a lovely morning, really enjoyed being able to go inside this canal side Palladian villa. The building, the canal and garden setting and the frecoes that were painted on completion of the building, all make a perfect morning out.

Reviewed 22 September 2014

I was surprised by the less than favorable reviews as we loved this villa. It has retained its support buildings and its setting on the canal and the interiors are simple and beautiful. The grounds are not in pristine condition but i cannot imagine the cost of maintaining the structures themselves. The front and rear elevations are each different and stately and tge contrast of colors on the main facade are striking.
I do not recommmend this for those with physical challenges as the stairs are steep and there is no handrail.
