Discover the Canova museum in Possagno and the peaceful Asolo


Are you fond of Neoclassical sculpture? Have you maybe been to Villa Borghese in Rome and admired the beautiful sculpture of Paolina Borghese? It is a work of art by Antonio Canova, a genius of the 18th century, born in Possagno, a little town outside Venice. In this tour I'll take you to see the birth place of this incredible artist, now transformed into a museum: the Canova Museum. You'll see where he grew up, you'll admire the plaster models that he used to produce the wonderful marble works of art that are now scattered around in the world, and you'll see his wonderful paintings.
We will then visit the local church and walk around the peaceful village.
We will then reach Asolo, a nearby town on top of a hill, where we will stop for lunch.
I'll take you then back to your hotel or back to Venice.
