The guided tour
The thirteenth-century Castello Cini stands at the foot of the Colle della Rocca and, over the centuries, has been the residence of the Padua’s court, then defensive tower and later a country villa of Venetian patricians. The route will allow you to visit the interior rooms, furnished with original furniture, carpets and tapestries of the time, the result of the careful search by Count Vittorio Cini who inherited the property in 1935.
The visit will continue in the armory, which boasts 916 unique pieces and offers a vision of the use and spread of weapons in Europe with reference to the medieval and Renaissance period. It will continue between the great medieval cuisine and the interior gardens, including the Venetian Courtyard, a harmonious and very private space designed for concerts and theatrical performances.
